Taking The Time To Say Hello, To Say Goodbye, I Am Sorry And I Love You.They say that whatever doesn't kill you makes one stronger. I had my doubts for a while. The moment I heard that my husband and childhood sweetheart had been taken away from me, my world stopped. I was devastated and inconsolable when I heard the terrible news that my love had been killed in Afghanistan. Time has passed and I am better now, but I always think to myself, why did I not tell him I loved him more often, I often think I should have laughed more at his jokes, he had a great sense of humor.
If I had known, every time I hugged him I would have done it for a little longer and cherished the moment. I think about the times I did not say I am sorry over our disagreements, why did I need to be right, well it's not that important anymore to be right. Somehow the last time I seen him, I even think that I did not properly say goodbye to him. It is hard to be strong when someone special leaves your life, and it doesn't get any easier with practice. I am writing this story because I learned that life is but a fleeting moment and to say that we must be kinder to those we love and to take the time for them, even if you are too busy, tommorow may not be here for all of us.
