I Waited Too Long – A God Nudge Story
Play

09/25/2015

Larry, my husband, said  “You better jump in your car and go visit Susan.”

That was probably a God Nudge. I said, “I can’t this week because I am too busy!”

Susan lived in a nursing home two hours away. I had met her seven years earlier when my mother was in the same nursing home. Susan was paralyzed from the waist down. Yet she always had a smile, a positive attitude, and always had several worthwhile projects going. She organized efforts to care for troops in Iraq, arranged simple bouquets and delivered them to individuals in the nursing home, raised money for the CROP walk,–and the list goes on and on.

The last time I talked to Susan was on October 24, 2013, she was spending all but 2 hours each day in bed. Yet, as usual, she was positive and loving and encouraged me to wear pink the next day because it was,” Breast Cancer Awareness Day.”

I told her that I had honored her in a radio program, “ Choose the Positive,”and she said she would love to see me and hear the program.”

When Larry, my husband, heard about our conversation, he said, “You better jump in your car and go see Susan.”

I didn’t. I was too busy. Susan died on November 15, 2013. I waited too long.

I regret that I did not follow God’s nudge.
