Am I Doing All I Can?

I love this poem it is such a great reminder of how we should be treating eachother. Am I doing all I can?sometimes our spouses, or our kid's do thing's that just drive us nut's and we forget how fragile life is and how we should be treating eachother. I had to blog this so when I think I am going nut's again when the kid's are just driving me crazy, my husband is saying  I am taking everything my husband say's wrong. I could just read through this poem and remember how lucky I am and to cherish each moment I have. As I was typing this my little girl noticed her fish just died so I'm off to console her and let her know how much I love her!

If tomorrow never comes...

If I knew it would be the last time that I'd see you fall asleep,

I would tuck you in more tightly, and pray the Lord your soul to keep.

If I knew it would be the last time that I'd see you walk out the door,

I would give you a hug and kiss, and call you back for just one more.

If I knew it would be the last time I'd hear your voice lifted up in praise,

I would tape each word and action, and play them back throughout my days

If I knew it would be the last time, I would spare an extra minute or two,

To stop and say "I love you," instead of assuming you know I do.

So just in case tomorrow never comes, and today is all I get,

I'd like to say how much I love you, and I hope we never will forget.

Tomorrow is not promised to anyone, young or old alike,

And today may be the last chance you get to hold your loved one tight.

So if you're waiting for tomorrow, why not do it today?

For if tomorrow never comes, you'll surely regret the day

That you didn't take that extra time for a smile, a hug, or a kiss,

And you were too busy to grant someone, what turned out to be their one last wish.

So hold your loved ones close today, and whisper in their ear,

That you love them very much, and you'll always hold them dear.

Take time to say "I'm sorry," "Please forgive me," "thank you" or "it's okay".

And if tomorrow never comes, you'll have no regrets about today.
