I don't know why I love this song. I've never seen the movies, neither do I like rap. But when I heard it I cried. I knew one of the actors had died from a tragic car accident. He had a child, a family, lots of friends, a great career, and charities that he supported. It seemed like he lead a full life and died when he was too young. Living life large, it became too much.
I guess I post this as I did on facebook a few days ago, thinking of the people I love, those I have loved and lost, my pets and grandparents. My own parents, who are getting older. My college friends that I haven't seen for years, but now have reconnected on facebook.
I guess I am more emotional as I am finishing my period, my dad is having his surgery next week, and my arm and hand have been pain-free for the last few days! That last event brings tears of joy and relief.
But with my dad and my own injuries, I think it just brought me back to what matters. That is the people and pets in my life. They won't always be around. I hope they know much I love them, how much they made a difference in my life, how much I wouldn't be here without them.
So I encourage you to do this too. Remember the people and pets in your life. Tell them that you love them. Tell them how they made a difference in your life. Tell them you wouldn't be here without them. Don't wait.
