Daily Strength - Friendship

Do not keep the alabaster boxes of your love and tenderness sealed up until your friends are dead. 
Fill their lives with sweetness. 
Speak approving, cheering words while their ears can hear them and while their hearts can be thrilled by them. 
The thing you mean to say when they are gone, say before they go. 
The flowers you mean to send for their coffins, send to brighten and sweeten their homes before they leave them. 

Henry Beecher
