On Saint Patrick’s Day this year, my wife and I will officially have been married for 13 years.

Each day, at least one of us leaves the house with the expectation that we will see one another later that day or evening.

This assumption may not always come true.

One of us will eventually die and the other will be left behind.

But we strive to create a positive lasting memory with each other.

Take a moment right now and think about all of the folks in your family and include a few friends too.

If you never have the opportunity to tell them how much them mean to you, will you have any regrets?  Will they have any regrets?

Because of the uncertainty of each of our lives, I urge you to stop and reach out to those that you need to touch, or who need to be touched by you and create a positive lasting memory, while you still can.
