It is said that the greatest loss is never to have loved. You could avoid the pain of saying goodbye by never saying hello. You could avoid the pain that comes with loving someone, perhaps. You could exist without really living.
Loving someone…a spouse, a parent, a son or daughter…makes our life complete. Together, there is laughter, tears and belonging…completeness. It is hard to say goodbye when the time comes, but just think what you would have missed by never having said hello. Cherish the memories of loving someone.
