This is Kelvin and Mary…
Mary died last Thursday.
This morning I ate breakfast with Kelvin.
We talked mostly about Mary.
Kelvin told me something that I need to tell you. He told me that I could.
“Don’t fight over the little things.” That’s what Kelvin said.
So she forgot to pay a bill. Don’t fight over it.
So he left his shoes in the hallway. Don’t fight about it.
Kelvin and Mary didn’t fight. Seriously, they didn’t.
Looking back he says that even the small moments of tension they had weren’t worth getting stressed out over.
What matters is love. Memories. Working together. Building something together.
Sometimes we fight over the little things… assuming that she/he will be there later on to clear things up.
She may not be.
Kelvin encouraged me to tell you to live with grace. Kindness. Patience. Love. Live today like she might be gone tomorrow.
That’s what Kelvin said.
