Shocked!

When we were in Hong Kong, a lovely young couple entertained us.  Yvonne took me shopping in the Ladies district where there truly are bargains.   We shared an enchanting six hour dinner with Yvonne and her husband Tony, sitting outside by the beach and enjoying the warm air.  They were a couple in love.  He would have to hop a cab each day to get to work rather than taking the bus because they so enjoyed their morning coffee on their balcony overlooking the water that each day he would be running a wee bit late.  They have a young daughter who would have joined us but she was sick that day.  This is a family that embodied happiness, joy, and love.  

Steve just got word that Tony has died.  We have no details at the moment, but I am shocked and stunned. 

I feel like a broken record and I am a broken record to myself.  This moment.  This.  This.   Now.  Now.   Now!

Take nothing for granted.   Tell all those you love that you love and tell them now.   Love!    Hold the word on your tongue like a mint and let it melt.
