Have you ever finished a conversation and then minutes after hanging up the phone (I still say that, but who hangs up a cell?) thought of some things you wanted to say, but couldn't think of at the time?
I think all of us have. We have all been part of a two-way
conversation in which not all is said that one would want to say, and
it is only later that we think of something we wished we'd said, but
didn't think of at the time—and then the moment is gone.
We often cannot go back and fill in what we left out.
It's kind of like when you drive past a place that holds memories
for you. You can't go back and physically be there again to relive
that time in reality. But God gave us memories for a reason. We
remember the bad as well as the good, and luckily for me, I remember
the good a whole lot better and more frequently than I remember the
There are places I go that trigger a sudden memory of something
good. Physically, I'm still in the present, but mentally—my mind
can recall my favorite times with amazing clarity. That my friends,
is called a blessing.
The same thing holds true for a good conversation with a good
friend. And, you never know. You may get a chance to say the things
you wanted to say and forgot to say. Not all conversations end
We've all heard the sad stories of people who wish they'd have
told a loved one how much they loved them, and then that person dies
and that moment is lost for good.
Most times though, we reunite with those very people with whom we
wanted to say more. The moment may be gone forever for saying certain
things, but the chance to talk again nearly always happens. And then
again, you may find the right moment to say what you should have
said, in a conversation minutes, days, or even years before. If you
get that chance, take it. If you get the chance to tell someone you
love them, take it. It too is a blessing.
