The other day while watching Whitney Houston’s funeral, I posted on Facebook
Tomorrow… Forget tomorrow.
I love you today and hopefully I can say it again tomorrow.
If you haven’t noticed, life is precious. A little over a month ago, my friends’ brother went missing.
Patrick and Ericka are great peeps! I know people say that about their friends all of the time and I’m sure its true because my friends truly are great! He’s funny and laid back and Ericka is funny, but she doesn’t know it! They balance each other. We often joke about how she is like my husband and I am like her husband. He is a true “peoples person” while she is more reserved. He’s into social media, she could care less…
On January 15th 2012, Patrick’s younger brother Charles S Parker went missing after a business meeting.
(Charles and Patrick on Charles wedding day)
I won’t go into details about the disappearance because you can find out more on Google, but Charles body was found yesterday down in a well.
Why am I writing about this? I guess because I want to say that bad things happen to good people too. Charles wasn’t some guy that was in the streets doing bad things. He was an assistant manager at Bank of America. He went to church every Sunday. As a matter of fact, the last day he was seen alive, he gave his rendition of the Martin Luther King Jr. “I Have a Dream” speech. Charles and his brother Patrick were also very talented singers. Charles was only 26 years old.
We sometimes take life for granted. We also take the presence of those that we are blessed to know in life for granted.
I will never understand why bad things like this happen. But what I always think about in terrible situations is that we don’t say I love you enough. Again, life is precious.
So instead of waiting til tomorrow…
I love you today and hopefully I’ll have the chance to say it again tomorrow.
Take care of yourself and love those around you.
