Expect (Five Minute Friday)

When you went to bed last night, I bet you expected to wake up this morning. You expect to live a good, long life and don’t think too much about how many more days you have on this earth. We expect things to keep going pretty much the way they have been going. Until they don’t go the way you think they will. Until one day something happens to someone you know and they are no longer able to be a part of your life for whatever reason. Did you get to say what you’d been meaning to say to them, or did you wait just one day too long for the right time to tell them how much they meant to you? If today were the last day you would get to be with someone you really care about, do they know how much you care? If not, why not? What are you waiting for? Don’t leave things unsaid. Don’t go to bed angry take a few minutes and tell that person how much you care about them and that you appreciate the part they play in your life. Don’t wait until it is too late. Expect the unexpected and say what needs to be said. Give the hugs. Resolve the differences.

This post is part of the weekly Five Minute Friday link-up!

The prompt this week is: Expect

The assignment: Write for five minutes on the word of the week. This is meant to be a free write, which means: no editing, no over-thinking, no worrying about perfect grammar or punctuation. Just write.
