Don't Forget To Say I Love You!

I sat down about an hour and a half ago to write today's post. This is not it. The phone rang. Mr. B answered it and I knew immediately something was terribly wrong.
Remember the dinner party he and I attended last Saturday evening? You can read about it here and here. The phone call was telling us that the precious man who hosted that dinner party with his wife, had died just a few moments earlier of a massive heart attack. Less than 48 hours earlier, I had laughed and joked with him after choir rehearsal. We talked about the party and how much fun we'd all had.
His name was Jack and he knew that I loved him. Please make sure that not only your family members, but also your friends, know that you love them. You absolutely never know.................
You don't know this couple, but I know you would have loved them. They loved each other and modeled that love for all to see. Ruth's 80th birthday is Sunday. She and I have always enjoyed having our birthdays so close together. Please pray for her and their children.
