Today instead of heading to the farm as planned I went to see my grandfather. I brought him the Christmas gift I've been holding onto for the last year. I gave him the pictures from the card I didn't get around to mailing out. I held his hand, something I had never done before. I looked at him. I saw him. He fell asleep before I had a chance to say goodbye.
I don't know if he'll be alive tomorrow.
If you're reading this please do me a favor. Call your family, someone you almost never talk to. Say Hello. Tell them you love them. Then just sit and listen. Give them your full concentration.
Life is fleeting. We shouldn't forget.
