Never Mind, There's Tomorrow

 

Once, there lived a child. He lived in a happy family with parents and siblings. However, he never stopped to think about how wonderful his life had been. He just kept on playing, squabbling with his siblings when they did not want to play what he wanted to play.
However, whenever he wanted to apologize, he would always say, "Never mind, there's tomorrow."

When he grew up a little, school was a very nice place for him. He learned, made friends and was very happy. However, he never thought that this was happiness to him. It all came so naturally that he felt it should become part of his life. One day, he had a great fight with his best friend. Though he knew he was in the wrong, he never took the initiative to apologize or made up with his best friend.
His excuse was, "Never mind, I'll do it tomorrow."

When he grew even up some more, that best friend was no longer part of his life. Even though he still sees his friend around, they don't even bother greeting each other. However, that was all right because he still had other good friends. He and his friends did almost everything together including eating, playing, doing homework and fooling around. Yes, they were a bunch of very good friends.

When he graduated, work kept him very busy. He found himself a very pretty and virtuous girlfriend and she soon became his constant companion. He made himself busy with work because he wanted to get promoted to the highest position within the shortest time possible.

Sure, he missed his good friends. He missed them a lot but he never tried keeping in touch with them, not even a telephone call.
He always said, "Boy, I'm so tired, I'll catch up with them tomorrow."
It didn't affect him at all because he could find colleagues who are always willing to go pubbing with him. As time passes by, he slowly forgets about his friends.

After he got married with kids, he works even harder in order to bring comfort to his family. He never buys flowers for his wife nor does he remember his wife's birthdays and their wedding anniversaries. It was all right because his wife always understood him and never blamed him.
He felt guilty at times and wanted very much to have a chance to say to his wife, "I love you", but he never got down to doing it.
His excuse was, "Never mind, I'll do it tomorrow for sure".
He never made it to his children's birthday parties but he did not know how it would affect the children. The children began to drift away from him as they never really spend any time with their father.

One day, disaster struck and his wife was killed in an accident. It was a hit and run accident. On that day, he was in the middle of an important meeting. Failing to understand that it is a fatal accident, he arrived by his wife's deathbed only to see her on the verge of death. Before he could mouth out the words, "I love you", his wife passed away.

The man became despondent and tried to find solace with his children after his wife's death. However, he soon realized that the children did not even try to communicate with him. Soon, his children grew up and found their own families. Nobody cared for this old man who didn't spare his time for them in the past.

He moved into the best old folk's home which provides excellent service with the money he had saved for his fiftieth, sixtieth, and seventieth wedding anniversary celebrations. All the money intended for Hawaii, New Zealand and holidays in various countries went into the fund that pays for his stay in the home.

From that time until his deathbed, there were only old folks and nurses taking care of him. He felt the loneliness that he did not feel before.
Upon his deathbed, he called a nurse in and said to her, "Ah. If only I had realized this earlier... ", and died with tears on his cheeks.

Time never stops for anybody. Before you realize it, you have gone very far along the path of life. Hence, if you had quarreled with someone, make up quickly! If you feel you need to hear your friend's voice, don't hesitate to pick up the phone. If there are many dreams that you wish to fulfill, fulfill them as soon as possible.

Lastly, but most importantly, if you feel you need to tell somebody that you care, don't wait until it is too late. If you keep thinking you will do it another day, then that day will never come. If you always think that tomorrow will come, then 'tomorrow' will run out quickly and you'll realize that time has already passed by. Treasure tomorrow and don’t live a life of regrets.
