I recently received an email from the widow of a subscriber to this blog. She’s a very young woman and had been married to her husband for just a few years. Among other things, she said:
If I have anything to say to currently-married people, it’s just to always love each other as though it may be your last day together, and to not wait until the perfect opportunity to do special things together.
This woman and her husband had some big, long-term travel plans, but they took the time to take small trips together. They didn’t push life and marriage aside to build something for the future; they worked to live now as they built for the future. Because of this, the widow has many good memories of a husband who loved and cared for her in special ways.
How are you doing at living for both the present and the future? If you knew one of you would die in five years, or one year, would you make changes? Would it be wise to make some of those changes even though you don’t know how long you each have?
