Day 1718: Spend time with people you love

Yesterday, I found out that two people I love will be leaving earlier than I wish. I’m resolving to spend as much time as possible with them whenever we can.

I often think of this line from Stephen Sondheim’s Into the Woods:

Sometimes people leave you halfway through the wood

because that’s inevitable, isn’t it?  Here are other  lines from that song:

Hard to see the light now

Just don’t let it go.

Things will come out right now

We can make it so.

Here‘s that song performed by Bernadette Peters, whom I love:

 

Let’s spend time with the photos I took yesterday.

Krystle Campbell left us too soon. Again, I resolve to spend time with people I love.

As always, I appreciate spending time with people I love on WordPress. Thanks to all who helped me create this post and to you — of course! — for visiting, here and now.

  1. Hello Ann,

    great post.That is the most important thing in life.
    Our loved ones are only important to us, and the time with them is inexplicable 🙂

    Thank you

  2. Indeed, Ann. Agreed, Ann.

  3. I’m so sorry you have two people that will leave sooner than you wish. That’s hard. My family is mostly far away, but we learned the hard way in 2004 that every day counts. Huge hugs to you and your family and friends.

  4. Your post sounds a bit sad today, and I’m Feeling sad tonight as well. Your comforting resolve is a wonderful act of kindness and friendship.

  5. Great post. I have had the same experience of having someone leave too soon (my aunt) and had even been telling myself I had to see her over and over for months. Then I looked up and she was gone. I vowed to be closer to those whom I love, and pay attention to the small voice when it says to check on or go see someone. Peace and Blessings

  6. Now I think I know why you have your supper by the water whenever you can. Maybe it is a place that can hold thoughts that are too big for just our hearts and minds. Sending peace and energy as you make this journey with the two you love.

  7. “How do you say it will all be all right
    When you know that it might not be true?”
    We never know how much time we have with those we love. Sometimes I forget that, which is why I’m grateful for reminders like yours.

  8. Sorry to hear that friends will be leaving Ann. Yes, spend as much time as you can… been there- no regrets and I treasure having had those times

  9. A reminder we all need

  10. This hits the heart Ann. I have many around me having to say goodbye to people very close to them, too soon. Way too soon. So they are spending all the time they can with one another. It’s so hard to see, and at the same time, it’s love…..

  12. Bernadette Peters is awesome ~ I love her too! More than ever, I am learning that spending time with people you love is the only way to live. Great to see this message here too 🙂

  13. I love spending time with you through your blog, Ann, and when on get behind because life intervenes, I catch up, as I’m doing today. I hope the dear ones who are leaving too soon arent ill but moving on to new opportunities. But saying goodbye is never easy. Hugs, 🌞
