have i told you lately?

“If I had a flower for every time I thought of you,
I could walk in my garden forever.”
~ Alfred Lord Tennyson

It's amazing how someone pops into your mind.  The speed of thought is astonishing.  When you least expect it ... BAM! they're there, and there's nothing you can do about it.  Now how does one act upon this?  Do you ignore it?  For how long?  Do you tell them you're thinking about them?  If so ... when?

I wonder what the world would be like if you always knew when someone was thinking about you?

... I bet the world would be a much better place.

We all like to know that someone is thinking about us; so why is it so difficult to tell someone?  Why does it so often become afterthought?  Entire holidays are devoted to reminding people to tell their loved ones that they're loved.  I think this is all a result of basic human nature.  I think it's natural to adapt, to grow accustomed... even when it comes to people.  The tendency is that once you've gotten something on any consistent interval, one begins to expect it.  Even the notion that this "something" has some sort of finite existence and will not in fact last forever starts to dwindle and eventually go away.  Romantic relationships fall victim to this cancerous mindset perhaps the most, and it's all too often in retrospect that we end up being tormented by regrets.

So what's the cure?

... I don't know, but I suppose just being aware is a step in the right direction.


  1. the celestine prophecy is a great book that talks about should always act on it. their is a reason you thought of that person whether you know what it is or not

  2. Daffodils, like a good friend: very difficult to find ;)


  3. Feeling you, my sweet giant friend! Think about you and the blessing you are in my life! xoxo
