Today I am spending a lot of quality time with Mark and my kids. My grandsons amaze and delight me so much with their quick wit, intelligence and kindness and they take my hand whenever they can to make sure I don’t fall. My extended family and friends are so kind as well. And recently I have had some of the most beautiful and intimate conversations that I’ve ever had, which makes me happy.
The best part of this limited time frame is that I have time to tell people I love them. My brother Mick died of a heart attack in his sleep and didn’t get the opportunity that I’m getting. I have time to organize my life the way I want and spend time with Mark and my kids and to prepare for the end. We all hug a little more tightly and a little bit longer these days and don’t complain about much and I feel lucky for all of it.
We’re all given the gift of time and it’s precious and I don’t want to waste a single moment. I hope you don’t either.
