I woke up with the song “Desperado” by the Eagles in my head this morning.
As I started my coffee, got the oven preheating, I brought up the song on my phone. Tears started falling as I placed the cupcake paper liners into the baking pans for the muffins. Some of you will understand right away my reaction; “Desperado” was a favorite song of the late Gary Monter. It was a song he sang to his boys as they were growing up.
Mr. Monter was my principal at Centura. He was great at his job, but he was also an amazing friend and person. He was 53 when he died, on a Sunday, in May of 2013.
I’m sure you have seen this video clip of Keanu Reeves.
Who loves you?
Who in your life needs to know you love them?
How can you tell them today?
Because today is the only day you really have to express your love for those that matter the most in your life.
I cried this morning making muffins, and it was good for my soul. The pain reminded me that tomorrow is not guaranteed… but love is… even after we are gone.
