It may seem selfish, but I just want all the people who love me to tell me while I can still hear them. I want to be given flowers while I can still see and smell them. I want to feel warm embraces from the ones I love, rather than have them leaning over my casket wishing they could hug me. I want to hear how important I am and how loved I am while I am still here. I want to be told how I put a smile on someone’s face or how I brightened their day. I want to be told how I made the world a better place, while I am still here. I do not want there to be any “ifs” left to grace the pages of my obituary. I just want to hear all of the good things about me from people who will probably never tell me to my face. How would a person’s life change for the better if they knew just how special they were?
