Tomorrow May Be Too Late

Okay. So yesterday I was super crabby. And when I'm super crabby, I usually listen to Skillet, a Christian rock band. And they ROCK let me tell ya. I was actually playing a game online while listening to them, while Jacob and Doug were outside. All of the sudden the lyrics of one song really grabbed my attention. Check it out:

Tick tock, hear the clock countdown
Wish the minute hand could be rewound
So much to do and so much I need to say
Will tomorrow be too late?

Feel the moment slip into the past
Like sand through an hourglass
In the madness, I guess, I just forget
To do all the things I said

Time passes by, never thought I'd wind up
One step behind, now I've made my mind up

Today, I'm gonna try a little harder
Gonna make every minute last longer
Gonna learn to forgive and forget
'Cause we don't have long, gonna make the most of it

Today, I'm gonna love my enemies
Reach out to somebody who needs me
Make a change, make the world a better place
'Cause tomorrow could be one day too late
One day too late, one day too late

Tick tock, hear my life pass by
I can't erase and I can't rewind
Of all the things I regret the most I do
Wish I'd spent more time with you

Here's my chance for a new beginning
I saved the best for a better ending
In the end I'll make it up to you
You'll see, you'll get the very best of me

Time passes by, never thought I'd wind up
One step behind, now I've made my mind up

Today, I'm gonna try a little harder
Gonna make every minute last longer
Gonna learn to forgive and forget
'Cause we don't have long, gonna make the most of it

Today, I'm gonna love my enemies
Reach out to somebody who needs me
Make a change, make the world a better place
'Cause tomorrow could be one day too late

Your time is running out
You're never gonna get it back
So make the most of every moment
Stop saving your best for last

Today, I'm gonna try a little harder
Gonna make every minute last longer
Gonna learn to forgive and forget
'Cause we don't have long, gonna make the most of it

Today, I'm gonna love my enemies
Reach out to somebody who needs me
Make a change, make the world a better place
'Cause tomorrow could be one day too late

One day too late, one day too late
One day too late, one day too late

It kind of all goes along with my message of getting out there and doing something for someone. You don't know how much time you'll have to do it. It could be your spouse, your friend, your child, your co-worker. Don't save your best for later. Give your best NOW.

Tomorrow may truly be one day too late. Do you want to live with that regret for the rest of your life? Tell the people you love how much you love them. Buy someone flowers for no reason. {Even if they're expensive!!} (Sorry, inside joke). Send someone a card. Pickup the phone. Offer a co-worker a ride. Ask someone how they're doing, and LISTEN to their answer.

Mean what you say, and for crying out loud, say what you mean. And then DO.
