>Expiration Date on Relationships……..

>I think it’s fitting that I return to the blogosphere on Memorial Day. I put my writing on hold last week after I lost a dear friend last week. He had battled a health condition for over a decade. His name was Reid and he was 24. He had a beautiful mind and a gentle spirit.

I am reminded from his loss how we never know how much time we have here on this celestial ball. I’d like you to ponder some questions I’ve been asking myself:

Am I making time for people that I “say” I value?

Do you call many people friends but have little depth in your friendships? We make time for what is important. If people in your life are important….make time.

What does my qaulity time look like with them?

Make sure you getting past surface conversation and on to things that matter. When they’re gone we won’t care that we talked about the weather.

Is there anything I need to say or do before one of us is gone?

Ask forgiveness and forgive where it’s needed. Communicate to them how they’ve impacted your life. What have you always wanted to say or do? No more excuses…do it.

Remember,

Nathan
