The Quotidian, November 4, 2010 ~ Bitterest Tears

“The bitterest tears shed over graves are for words left unsaid and deeds left undone.” ~ Harriet Beecher Stowe (June 14, 1811 to July 1, 1896)

Harriet Beecher Stowe was an American abolitionist and author. She is famously known for her anti-slavery novel Uncle Tom’s Cabin (1852) .

What are you leaving unsaid? Have you told the people you love that you love them recently? Tell them today. Tell them now.

What are you leaving undone? Have you reviewed your progress on what you want to complete before you die? Can you make a phone call or send an email? Can you ask for any help you might need? What can you do to reinvigorate your project? Do this today. Do this now.

Blessings to you. Sincerely, Andy
