JUST ENOUGH TIME TO SAY “I LOVE YOU”

JUST ENOUGH TIME TO SAY “I LOVE YOU” September 11, 2020
On September 11th, 2001, the victims of the attack had precious seconds to call one person they loved and say goodbye, or ask forgiveness, or let them know just how much they cared for them.
And then it was goodbye.
Who would you make that call to? What would you say to them?
As we remember the tragedy of 9/11 today, I encourage all of us to take the time to put ourselves in the shoes of those who lost their lives that fateful day.
Find your cell phone. Call that one person.
Make sure they know how much you love them.
Make sure they know you’re sorry for what you did, or what you said, or what you didn’t say.
And when you say ‘goodbye’ at the end of that call, rejoice that for you it is not goodbye forever.
You are still alive. You can even make another call or two before this day is over.
This is your opportunity to heal; to forgive; to love; to live.
Don’t miss it.
