LEARNING – life is short

Life is short. Everyday we grow a little bit older and every year we have less time with the ones we love. There are so many distractions, so many complications, and so many other things on our minds in this crazy journey called life. Don’t forget the most important thing – your loved ones.

Tell the people you care about how you feel. Even if you think they already know, tell them again and again and again. Say it now and say it often. You never know when it’s going to be the last time.

I don’t know what will happen tomorrow or a year from now – so right now, while I know I can say it, I will tell you how I feel.

This one goes out to all of my family and friends out there – I love you. Thank you for being in my life, and thank you for allowing me to be in yours. Thank you for supporting me even if you secretly thought I would fail. Thank you for accepting me for who I am and not judging me for who I’m not. Thank you for your spare rooms and couches. Thank you for the meals we’ve shared and the memories we’ve made. Thank you for your concern, your advice, and your sincerity. Thank you for your friendship, but most of all – thank you for your love.

When was the last time you said I love you? Maybe now is a good time to do it again.


Thanks for reading!

– Rene

  1. Thank you Rene, you are a great lady to have as a cousin and a friend! I love hearing about your adventures and I love it when you’re in town and we get to go fishin’ and cook and hang out! I love you!

    • You are a great cousin too. I’m looking forward to seeing you all fairly soon (within the next several months). Chocolate chip cookies and smoked salmon here I come. Love to you and the rascals. -Rene
