As I sat in the waiting room for my 4 hour glucose tolerance test, I watched the world move around me. I was really grateful for the opportunity to be forced to sit for the day and reflect. The most beautiful couple that had to be in their late 90's walked in slowly hand in hand.
The middle aged people that came in were all in a rush. Never smiled and frowned upon any wait. I hid myself behind my book for them, I didn't want to get in the way of any cross fire. Being in a rush just isn't healthy.
The book I was reading was "If You Had an Hour to Live" by Richard Carlson and Kristine Carlson. It is a true story about life, love and making the most of every minute. My kind of read! The first quote in here caught my attention and I wanted to share it. "If you had an hour to live and could make just one phone call, who would it be to, what would you say....and why are you waiting?" The original source was Stephen Levine. None of us know how long we have to live. Make sure you are making every moment count and treat life as the miracle it is. Love and be loved. Live in Joy. Be happy. Yes, I am slowing down physically by the day but I am grateful that I have learned so much appreciation for the love of life. Make sure that you let all your special people know how much you love and appreciate them, right now.
