In the Blink of an Eye
My friend arrived home to find her husband in the back yard. He suffered an aneurysm while mowing the yard. They had been married 42 years.
I will wear my pretty clothes and lingerie.
I will burn my fancy candles.
I will use my china and crystal and linen napkins.
I will fill my house with fresh flowers.
I will kiss the ones I love.
I will tell them why they are special.
I will say the words...
I will say, "I love you."
I will tell them I know they love me.
I will thank God.
I will remember what can happen in the blink of an eye.
As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth.
For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone...
