And there was static

(Photo credit- http://www.npr.org)

You know that long continuous beep that signifies that there’s nothing on the other end of the line- static- that’s the sound I hear right now. It’s the sound that one hears after goodbyes are said; not just any goodbye, but a goodbye that you don’t know when next you’d hug the person; not just any person, but your loved ones; not just any loved one, but a specially loved one- the one you want to spend the rest of your life with.

And I’m still going to hear more of that nothingness noise tomorrow, when more specially loved ones return home.

Sometimes, we can know beforehand when a goodbye would be said, other times, we can’t. The importance of cherishing every moment with your loved ones cannot be overemphasized.

Food for thought:

What’s the point of fighting if you’d regret it after the person is gone?

Life nugget:

Argue less. Embrace more. Abuse less. Encourage more.
