Weekly thoughts and announcements from our Pastor, Fr. Tom Lewandowski.

If I Knew...

If I knew it would be the last time I’d see you fall asleep, I would tuck you in more tightly and pray the Lord your soul to keep…If I knew it would be the last time I’d see you walk out the door, I would give you a hug and kiss and call you back for one more…If I knew it would be the last time I’d hear your voice lifted in praise, I would video tape each action and word so I could play them back day after day…If I knew it would be the last time, I could spare an extra minute to stop and say, “I love you” instead of assuming you would know I do….If I knew it would be the last time I would be there to share your day, well I’m sure you’ll have so many more so I can just let this one slip away…For surely there’s always tomorrow to make up for an oversight, and we always get a second chance to make everything right…There will always be another day to say, “I love you” and certainly there’s another chance to say, “Anything I can do?...But just in case I might be wrong, and today is all I get, I’d like to say how much I love you and how I will never forget…Tomorrow is not promised to anyone, young or old alike, and today may be the last chance you get to hold your loved ones tight…So if you’re waiting for tomorrow, why not do it today? For if tomorrow never comes, you’ll surely regret the day that you didn’t take that extra time for a smile, a hug or a kiss. And you were too busy to grant someone what turned out to be their one last wish….So hold your loved ones close today, and whisper in their ear. Tell them how much you love them and that you’ll always hold them dear….Take time to say, “I’m sorry,” “Please forgive me,” “Thank you,” or “It’s okay.”…And if tomorrow never comes, you’ll have not regrets about today.
