Words Went Unspoken

Rose Americana バラ アメリカーナphoto © 2011 T Kiya | more info (via: Wylio)Most humans crave companionship and love, I know I do.  We want the people in our lives to appreciate us and to wish us well.  The problem is the people in our lives get so busy they forget to express their feelings to the ones they love.  I was teaching a Sociology class for a couple of years and everytime I talked about single parenting I would think about Erica.  I knew she was battling some tough issues and I had a strong admiration for what she was doing, but I never called and told her I was proud of her.  Words Went Unspoken.   I think about times that I could have just said, " Erica I admire you for having the courage and strength to go to college full-time while raising two daughters and working full-time, I know it can't be easy."  But I didn't, I thought it in my head, but the words went unspoken.

It is easy to think you'll always have time to say something later, or do something for someone another day.  But one day no more chances will remain to say the words you want to say.  The words went unspoken and will stay that way.

  1. I daily think of things I wish had been said, and constantly think of things we will miss now, tomorrow, and in the future.
