"The Preacher" asked the question tonight at church, "What if you had one more day to live? What would you do differently?" He went on to talk about a book that was written called "One Month to Live (Thirty Days to a No-Regrets Life)". Although, I've pondered that thought before, for some reason tonight it sunk in a little deeper.
What would I do differently? I guess I'm going to need to think on it a bit more because he issued homework to us tonight... we need to make a list of five things we would do differently if we had 30 days to live.
One thing I KNOW I'd do differently is speak more AND speak less!
I would want my family to know how truly, deeply I love them.
My siblings (I think) think of me as the mushy one... the sentimental sap, but in truth, I don't tell my hard-working husband, my so-sweet sons, my sacrificial parents, my many siblings, or my dearest friends enough just how rich my life is because they're in it.
I would spend less time speaking negatively or of things that just don't add up to much, and use my ears more to hear what others really have to say.
I think Steve said ... "we are ALL "terminal", we just don't know how much time we have left." (or something like that) Imagine how this world would change... if we all "lived like we were dying".
I'll be pondering that thought all week. What would you do differently???
