Tell Them They Matter Before It’s Too Late

You matter.

Ladies and gentlemen, no one can really predict the future.  Psychics and mediums are things that happen in Hollywood and late night infomercials on television.  Magician Harry Houdini regularly went to séances to bust phonies who suckered grieving people out of their money and valuable time.

Scam artists like Kenny Kingston and Sylvia Browne do not really see dead people standing around you, waiting to give you a message from the great beyond.  And I don’t know about you, but the idea that a bunch of dead people are always standing there staring at me gives me the freekin’ willies, my babies.  I do not want to know that grandpa always has his eye on me. Go play poker with Jesus, gramps, and leave me alone!

Long story short, once someone is gone, they are gone.  They are not going to spend eternity trying to get a message to you.  Dead folks have better things to do…such as playing footsie with critters in the soil.

Since it is impossible for dead people to talk to you (regardless of what the scam artists say), you might want to consider righting any wrongs, saying “I love you,” and telling your loved ones they matter before they die—before you die.

Forgive. Heal.  Repair relationships.  Make good relationships stronger.

Do all these things now.  Do not wait another minute.  You do not want to be one of those people who live the rest of their lives saying, “Shoulda, coulda, woulda, mighta…” do you?

Starting today, tell the people you love, “You Matter to Me.”  Phone them.  E-mail them.  Drive to their house, knock on their door, and tell them face-to-face that they matter to you.  You do not know how much longer you have together, and you do not want to wind up regretting things left unsaid.

Do you want to get a little thought for the person (or people) who matter to you?  The organizers of the third annual You Matter to Me Day have an online shop that sells coffee mugs, stationery, bags, teddy bears and more!  And of course you can always give your loved one something homemade.

    This is very, very true indeed. As it happens when some circumstances outside of one’s control prevent us to do what ought to have been done … it is hard to find peace.
    Thank you,
