Gone but not forgotten

The world lost a great person today. If I've learned anything from friends' passing, it's to not take things for granted. Lately, I've just wanted to kick myself because I take things for granted. I take for granted that I'll be able to talk to you tomorrow, so I don't call. I take for granted that I'll be able to come visit you , so I don't stop by. I take for granted that I'll be able to email you later so I put off the just saying hello thinking of you email, because I can do it tomorrow. It's sad that death has to remind me that I'm not guaranteed tomorrow SO if you are in my life, I truly hope you know how special you are to me. I love each and every one of you! Thank you for being such great friends and standing by my side when I needed things. Thanks for supporting me even if you don't always agree with my choices. Thanks for sometimes telling me what I need to hear, gently, and for slapping me back to reality when I needed it too. Most of all, thanks. It was time for me to stop taking all of your wonderful friendships for granted and say thank you. THANK YOU!
