There’s an old saying that “you should not put off until tomorrow, things that can be done today”……or words to that effect.

I’m reflecting on those words right now – thinking just how true they are.  In fact those words seem to be screaming at me.  I’ll tell you why.

A friend of mine has just passed away.  She had been sick for a few months.  I knew this.  I just didn’t realise HOW sick.  Of course I would have  – and should have – except that I was caught up in my own problems.  What a miserable  excuse.

I have been going to call in when I was in town.  I seemed to be always busy.  Too busy to drop in and say hi.  I didn’t feel well. I had shopping to do. Or errands to run. Or the child needed picking up from somewhere.  Or I had simply run out of time.

I didn’t realise that my friend was the one running out of time.

And I’m sorry. I’m so very, very sorry that I didn’t make the time for you my friend.  That doesn’t make me much of a friend – and I’m sorry.  For being selfish and for being busy and for not thinking of you when you needed me to.  I thought about dropping by so often….. I thought you would get better – but I was so wrong.    My plans to actually visit tomorrow came too late and  now there’s absolutely nothing I can do about it.   I feel like a complete mongrel.

For my other friends,  I promise you this:-

  • I will pick up the phone and ring.
  • I will visit first – the other errands can wait.  Since when were groceries or chores more important than people?
  • I will email and let you know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.
  • I will put my own bad day aside and hold your hand through yours.
  • I will have no more regrets that I didn’t do these things.

And I will miss you, my friend.

Just thought I would share with you a bracelet that I made late last year and have now just put it up for sale on my website.  There’s something very satisfying about starting out with some glass rods and sterling silver wire and creating a little piece of art right from scratch.  All of what you see in this bracelet has been created by me from raw materials – with the exception of the two sterling silver beads on either side of the focal and the little star charm on the dangle. I gotta say it’s really nice to see a finished product after having cut, shaped, balled, soldered, hammered and polished wire  into submission – not to mention the melting of glass into pretty beady things….lol.  Hope you like it!  For more info (inc price etc) click on “My Website” in the right hand column….. 🙂   BRACELET IS NOW SOLD!!! Thank you Alex!!
