There is an opportunity I’ll never have again.
I recently attended the funeral of a friendly gentleman from my church. Every week after the service, we’d make a little light talk. He was very likable but we never went too deeply into conversation as we were both making our exits.
The funeral had a huge turnout. I’d be happy if my own funeral got even a fraction of that amount of people. I listened with interest at the eulogy and stories that came out. I discovered a lot more about his history & his unique personality. There was much I didn’t know about him.
The more I heard, the more I realised I should have sat down with him from time to time for a longer conversation.
I am sure I could have learnt much from him. If nothing else, it would have surely been an entertaining chat.
Hearing at the funeral about his kindness and hospitable attitude, I’m sure it would have inspired me to better myself if I had talked to him more.
It’s too late to do have those conversations with him now. But it’s not too late for me to talk to others, to say “let’s sit & talk for a while”.
