I have always realized that tomorrow is promised to no one – it was brought home to me 42 years ago when I was diagnosed with a small cerebral aneurism.  I have shared how I failed to say “I love you” to Frank on the morning he died, and 16 years later a nagging sorrow and regret about that being one of the handful of days in 20 years that I failed to do so can still bring tears to my eyes.  Perhaps it is those two things that make me aware of the things I have not said to those that I am around, the words of appreciation, respect, affection that I have thought, but failed to say to friends and family or coworkers or even daily acquaintances.  I can only hope the kids know how proud I am of them and how much I love them.  I can only hope my friends know how honored and grateful I have been for the connection and joy they have brought into my life.  I can only hope coworkers and acquaintance understand the respect I have for their KSA and consideration.  And, it makes me careful what I say on social media, even when I am upset or angered by cruelty and pigheadedness.  Words matter
