Don’t be too busy today. For somebody you love, wake up tired tomorrow. Have an extra cup of coffee in the morning with a smile because you filled your soul with a new memory and extra love. Because you never know when you’re going to have to wake up without them. Waking up tired is always, always better than waking up empty.
