Time is Too Short to Say I Love You

After 21 years of marriage my wife wanted me to take another woman out to a dinner and a movie. She said, “I Love You, but I know this other woman loves you and would love to spend some time with you. The other woman that my wife wanted me to visit was my Mother, who has been a widow for 19 years, but the demands of my work and my three children had made it possible to visit her only occasionally.

That night I called to invite her to go out for dinner and a movie. “What’s wrong, are you well”? she asked. She was suspicious of something. “I thought that it would be pleasant to spend some time with you,” I responded. “Just the two of us. She thought about it for a moment, and then said, “I would like that very much.

That Friday after work, as I drove over to pick her up, She was waiting at the door with her coat on. She had curled her hair and was wearing the dress that she had worn to celebrate her last wedding anniversary. She smiled from a face that was as radiant as an angel’s. “I told my friends that I was going to go out with my son, and they were impressed, “she said, as she got into the car. We went to a restaurant that was very nice and cozy. My mother took arm as if she were the First Lady. After we sat down, I had to read the menu. Her eyes could only read large print. Half way through the entries, I lifted my eyes and saw Mom sitting there staring at me, a nostalgic smile was on her lips. “It was I who used to have to read the menu when you were small,” she said. “Then it’s time to relax and let me return the favour’” I responded. During the dinner, we had an agreeable conversation- nothing extraordinary but catching up on recent events of each other’s life. We talked so much that we missed the movie. As we arrived at her house later, she said, “I’ll go out with you again, but only if you let me invite you.” I agreed. “How was your dinner date?” asked my wife when I got home. “Very nice. Much more so than I could have imagined,” I answered.

A few days later, my mother died of a massive heart attack. It happened so suddenly that I didn’t have a chance to do anything for her. Some time later I received an envelope with a copy of a restaurant receipt from the same place mother and I had dined. An attached note said: “I paid this bill in advance. I wasn’t sure that I could e there; but nevertheless, I paid for two plates- one for you and the other for your wife. You will never know what that night meant for me. I love you, son.”

At that moment I understood the importance of saying in time: “I LOVE YOU” and to give our loved ones the time that they deserve. Nothing in life is more important than your family. Give them the time they deserve, because these things cannot be put off till “some other time”.

Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and everything. Nevertheless think about if you added some great graphics or video clips to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with pics and clips, this blog could definitely be one of the very best in its field. Awesome blog!
