I read a book once, written by Charles Krauthammer called “Things That Matter”.
I read it as he used his older articles to convey what is truly important in life.
Many people will never get it. Many people will live totally self centered lives and never know the special friendship where you give yourself totally to a loved one, during their final days
I have been blessed. Not only have I enjoyed a close and loving friendship for 25 years with my friend, but right now, I am able to be here to give her love, support, and quiet peace.
I am so thankful for this. There are times when special people pass from this life to the next and you never have the chance to tell them how special they are and how much you love them. I have been given this gift and in the quiet of her room, when she sleeps or wakes, I am here.
So what really matters in this crazy world?
Love. Selfless, pure, gentle love.
Someone wrote once if you were lucky to know a true selfless love, you were the luckiest person alive.
I have been very lucky my friends! Very lucky, indeed!
