This week on Friday, I pray to celebrate another year as the sun sets on the blessing of this past one and ushers in the promise of a new & glorious one.  Ever since first hearing the song in this video, each time I hear it I would often think about my brother, Darrick, who passed at the same age that I am now.  At the time of his celebration of life I would often think about how we say tomorrow is not promised, however, do we really do anything to act differently towards people in our lives to seize the time we are given?


It was then I started on the path of wanting to live life specifically engaging with loved ones and those whose lives have been a blessing.  It’s important to take time to reflect, appreciate, and embrace either physically, verbally, or simply communicate to those we often take for granted…as you never know when you may no longer have the opportunity to do so.


To not wait to say “I love you”, to give a gift that says I’m thinking of you, to spend time with that person.
To not wait to do and say things to those we love so they know how much they mean to us.
To not wait to do the things that may touch, inspire and uplift them to bring out the best in them.


This video is one way of me expressing that, though everyone in my life is not in it, they are in my heart and often thoughts & prayers, not even knowing it.  So as a reminder to myself and you as well as a birthday wish & hopefully inspiration to anyone reading this or viewing the video, take time every so often just to let them know their significance in your life.


 “Imagine there was no tomorrow
Imagine that I couldn’t see your face…
..I wanna tell you something
Give you something
Show you in so many ways
Cause it would all mean nothing
If I don’t say something
Before it all goes away
Don’t wanna wait to bring you flowers
Waste another hour
Let alone another day
I’m gonna tell you something
Show you something
Won’t wait til it’s too late”


I share this as inspiration for all of us to not waste a minute, hour, day..not living life in purpose and intention to touch those who we have in our lives TODAY..NOW!
