On borrowed time

Vietnam Memorial in Portland, Oregon Photo during my 2010 summer trip

This week...
A father of a friend passed away
A mother of a friend lost her battle with cancer
A friend twelve years my junior is starting her fight against cancer
To them I offer my prayers and send my love.

At these times, I ponder on my own mortality. I think of beginnings and endings. How time is borrowed. Just thinking of the time we are given to express our love to our family and friends. Why do we wait and wait until we say we love them?
