In grief we realize, we just live. We do not take the time to realize each moment we live, has more meaning than we take the time to realize. We do not take the time to realize the people close to us, are needed. We take their love, laughter and presence for granted.
At some point there will be no new beginnings. No second chance given. Until you are faced with a moment of grief does the question arise, how well do we really know someone. We can interact with people our whole lives. We can share our lives but all you really know about them are the stories they share. Until you are faced with a moment of grief do we find out what type of person they truly are and even then there will be stories unconfirmed leaving mysteries blowing in the wind.
