Are You Ready?

Every minute someone leaves this world behind. We are all in “the line” without knowing it. We never know how many people are before us.


We cannot move to the back of the line.

We cannot step out of the line.

We cannot avoid the line.


So while we wait in line -

Make moments count.

Make priorities.

Make the time.

Make your gifts known.

Make a nobody feel like a somebody.

Make your voice heard.

Make the small things big.

Make someone smile.

Make the change.

Make love.

Make up.

Make peace.

Make sure to tell your people they are loved.

Make sure to have no regrets.

Make sure you are ready.
