    So I don't know why they say that.

  • OMGOSH, I had a sibling die a few years ago and I would take back any moment with him I could. Just to relive it, to see his face. He was a major pain, but I would take that pain over his being gone any day. I wish I so would have given him some love, some friendship, something.
    So I guess life is short, take the moments while you have them and use them to your fullest.
