Please Read or Watch My Blog Post 6:03 PM on February 4, 2011,

Even in the middle of tragedy, I am amazed at how the mind can remember the smallest detail.

For me it’s 6:03 pm on February 4, 2011…that’s what I remember.

I’ve blogged about my sister’s sudden passing several times before so you all know Latoshia died suddenly in her sleep sometime in the early morning on February 5, 2011. But as I stood in her yard and watched the coroner’s van take her body away, my mind went back to the last conversation we had. I was desperate. I couldn’t wrap my mind around what was happening so I grabbed my phone and I scrolled through my time time log until I reached 6:03 pm on February 4, 2011. That call was the beginning of the last time I would speak to my sister. She was telling me about her day and she was cracking jokes left and right. She had rolling. We laughed so much and I thank God for that sweet memory. But if I would have known, it would be our last conversation, I would have talked a little longer. I would have told her how much I loved her. I would have apologized for all the times I acted stupid. I wouldn’t have let her go to sleep.

So today I ask you, if you knew that a conversation at 6:03 pm with someone you loved would be your last, what you say? What would you do? How long would you talk with them? You see my sister’s death has taught me so much about life and the importance of cherishing every moment you have because I know now more than ever that tomorrow is not promised to you. We take so many things in life for granted. We take our spouses, our children, our families and friends for granted. I refuse to live life full of regrets…that’s why I hug and kiss on my husband and kids so much. That’s why I tell my family and friends how much I love them. That’s why I am so passionate about motivating and helping others; it’s because I know the breath taking pain behind losing a piece of you.

I encourage those of you who are reading this, to (if you haven’t) start making the most of every minute…every second you have with the people you love. It’s not about life being too short, it’s about time well spent. Right now you are blessed with a clock that continue to tick but for me and my sweet sister…I am left with the bitter-sweet time stamp from 6:03 pm on February 4, 2011.
