Next New Beginnings - January 24 - 27, 2008
I love you
by Dr Jim Dubel
A older patient of
mine shared this story with me today. Her husband had just recently died,
and on that clear, cold morning, in the warmth of their bedroom, the she
was struck with the pain of learning that sometimes there isn't
"anymore". No more hugs, no more special moments to celebrate together,
no more phone
calls just to chat, no more
"just one minute." Sometimes, what we care about the most gets all used
up and goes away, never to return before we can say good-bye, or say
So while we have it, it's
best we love it, care for it, fix it when it's broken and heal it when
This is true in our
practices, in our marriage ... for children with bad report cards... and
dogs with bad hips. Aging parents and grandparents and every person who
has touched our lives, in a positive way. We keep them because they are
worth it, because we are worth it.
Some things we keep -- a best
friend who moved away an old patient who can no longer afford care, or a
sister-in-law after divorce. There are just some things that make us
happy, no matter what.
Life is important, like the
people we know who are special. And so, we keep them close!
I was thinking...I could die
today, tomorrow or next week, and I wondered if I had any wounds needing
to be healed, friendships that needed rekindling or three words needing
to be said.
Let every one of your
patients, friends and family know you love them. Even if you think they
don't love you back, you would be amazed at what those three little words
and a smile can do.
And just in case GOD calls me
I LOVE YOU !!!
Live today to the fullest
because tomorrow is not promised.
May God flow from above down
, his bounteous strength to you... to give, serve and LOVE in
All My Love, Loyalty and

As we grow up, we learn
that even the one person that
wasn't supposed to ever let you down probably will. You
will have your heart broken probably more than once and
it's harder every time. You'll break hearts too, so
remember how it felt when yours was broken. You'll fight
with your best friend. You'll blame a new love for things
an old one did. You'll cry because time is passing too fast,
and you'll eventually lose someone you love. So take too
many pictures, laugh too much, and love like you've never
been hurt because every sixty seconds you spend upset
is a minute of happiness you'll never get back. Don't be
afraid that your life will end, be afraid that it will never
People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime.
When you know which one it is, you will know what to do for that person.
When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed.
They have come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with
guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally or spiritually.
They may seem like a godsend and they are.
They are there for the reason you need them to be.
Then, without any wrongdoing on your part or at an inconvenient time,
this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an
end. Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away.
Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand.
What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire
fulfilled, their work is done.
The prayer you sent up has been answered and now it is time to move on.
Some people come into your life for a SEASON, because your turn has come
to share, grow or learn.
They bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh.
They may teach you something you have never done.
They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy.
Believe it, it is real. But only for a season.
LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons,
things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional
Your job is to accept the lesson,
love the person and put what you have learned to use in all other
relationships and areas of your life.
It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant.
Thank you for being a part of my life,
whether you were a reason, a season or a lifetime.
Have a Healthy Happy Holiday Season..
