One of my.............

bigger blunders in life, was done this past week. Please allow me to bore you. My last post was due to some soul searching & thinking about days gone. Along with that came one un-kept promise. In my "This is my annual..." post, I wrote that the Mom of my deceased friend called to let me know what happened. During the very log conversation, she had me promise to go & visit her. I didn't know when or how, but I stated that I would. A bit of time passed, I lost her contact information........& thought that was it. Recently, I rediscovered it. Well, some of it. I found my friend's brother's (that's a mouthful) contact info. So a letter was written....................yes, pen & paper! My request was simple, could he pass the letter on to his Mom. I wrote that I had not forgotten my promise & I needed to keep it. Then came the blow (actually the e-mail). Not long ago, his Mom died of a heart attack. Not that is was any consolation, he was very happy that I had thought of his Mom.

Needless to say, I felt the fool . I felt miserable. Still do & will, no doubt, for a very long time. For the most part, one can redo things & try to make them right. Unfortunately, this isn't one of those times. It's amazing how one little thing can & will occupy a place in the memory archives.........probably forever.

One thing that I have now had pressed upon me. Don't waste any more time. It's too precious, and things can change without being ready for them...........................cheers
