In the year 2012...

So I will forewarn you... this isn't a feel-good entry but it is about something we all need to think about.
So, I was reading the paper today and there was an article about the year 2012... the end of the world. Go ahead, just google it. As I was reading it is talked about solar flare ups, Eros, Myan calendars, and God all resulting in the end, and that is only five years away. Scary stuff!! But as I read all of this stuff I got a lump in my throat, I didn't think about myself but I was terrified for Bug. Can I save her? Can I keep her from getting hurt? Can I love her enough between now and the end to make all of the bad go away? I want to run home with her and hold her and love her and never let her go!
I know, it is almost silly the way I am going on. But then I realized... I don't know when the end will ever be. I told you, up lifting stuff! So, I am making a promise today to stop being so angry and cynical, to be more kind and compassionate. To show her love and how to be a good person not by my words but by my actions. I want her to be a better person than I could ever be.
"If tomorrow never comes, will she know how much I loved her. Did I try in every way to show her every day just how much I loved her. And if my time on earth were through and she had to face this world without me, is the love I gave her in the past going to be enough to last, if tomorrow never comes... " -Garth Brooks "If Tomorrow Never Comes"
