I want to smell my flowers, thank you

Ever since the passing of Anna Nicole Smith, I have been thinking. I am always amazed at the outpouring of emotion and kind words when someone passes always. But I always wondered why now? I mean why wait when someone is gone to say how much they mean to you? Why wait until they are buried to say how much you loved them? It amazed me to see all of these stars and friends talk about their memories of her now that she is gone. I saw pics from the funeral and read about the huge arrangement of flowers put together for her burial.

Me. I want to smell my flowers. I want to enjoy them. I want to know who sent them and call them up and thank them. I want to look at them and smile thinking about the wonderful person who sent them. I want to know that someone loved me or cared enough about me to send me flowers. I want to know how much I mean to someone, or how I have touched them. I want to reminisce right now about the crazy stuff, the funny stuff or the time I made them laugh, cry or do both at the same time.

What I am trying to say is don't wait until someone is gone to talk about how much you love them. Don't wait until they are dead and buried to talk about how much they meant to you. Don't put off calling someone up you haven't spoken to in awhile. Don't wait until you have time to drop a note or a card, or even an email you have been meaning to send for awhile. Make sure all those you care about know it and if you have been mad with someone, be the bigger person and let them know that you love them anyway. Make sure they enjoy their flowers while they are alive. Life is too short. Q
