Believe it or not

A British officer, Major Summerford, while fighting in the fields of Flanders in February 1918 was knocked off his horse by a flash of lightning and paralyzed from the waist down. Summerford retired and moved to Vancouver.

 One day in 1924, as he fished alongside a river, lightning hit the tree he was sitting under and paralyzed his right side. Two years later Summerford was sufficiently recovered that he was able to take walks in a local park. He was walking there one summer day in 1930 when a lightning bolt smashed into him, permanently paralyzing him.

He died two years later. But lightning sought him out one last time. Four years later, during a storm, lightning struck a cemetery and destroyed a tombstone. The deceased buried here? Major Summerford.

ONE STORY A DAY

If only I knew

…..If I knew it would be the last time
That I 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 could spare an extra minute
To stop and say “I love you”,
Instead of assuming you would KNOW I do…..

…..Just in case…..
…..today is all I get,
I’d like to say how much I love you
And I hope we 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 one 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 no regrets about today.
