It was a way of life, and sometimes it made me crazy.
All that re-fixing, reheating, renewing, I wanted just once
to be wasteful. Waste meant affluence. Throwing things
away meant you knew there'd always be more.

But then my Father died, and on that clear summer's
night, in the warmth of the hospital room, I was struck
with the pain of learning that sometimes there isn't any

Sometimes, what we care about most gets all used up
and goes away...never to return. So...while we have it...
it's best we love it..... and care for it ......and fix it when
it's broken.....and heal it when it's sick.

This is true.....for marriage.....and old cars..... And
children with bad report cards.....and dogs with bad
hips.....and aging parents.....and grandparents. We
keep them because they are worth it, because we
are worth it.

Some things we keep. Like a best friend that moved
away -- or -- a classmate we grew up with.There are
just some things that make life important, like people
we know who are special.....and so, we keep them

I received this from someone who thought I was a
'keeper'. Send this to all those people that are
"keepers" in your life...like you!!

You're a Keeper!
