Judge Rembert
Guest Columnist


She sat on her porch and pondered...
Her mind was racing...
So many questions...
So many answers...
But which answer was correct…
Now that was the dilemma...

Her dear friend had cancer...
The friend was recently told...
Told that the doctors had done all...
All that could be done...
Her friend was told...
Told the treatments were over...

Now that means she will leave this world...
No one knows the exact day...
But they have a time limit...
She sat and she pondered...
How does she help this friend...
She too is fighting cancer...
She is in remission...
But she knows the fears...
She is aware of the fight...

She sits and thinks...
Many people die in car accidents...
Others go with heart attaches...
These people do not have any warning...
These people do not have a chance to say...
Say goodbye...
No chance to give anyone a gift...
No chance to make certain...
Certain that people know how much...
Much they love them...
How important they were to them...

She is a person who tries to find...
Find the good in things...
Even bad things...
She will ask God to help...
Help her help her friend...

She will try to talk to her friend...
She will try to hold her hand...
She will use this time...
Time to show her friend how important...
Important their friendship is to her...

They will use this time carefully...
Time that now is known to be limited...

But life is strange...
Another friend may be gone...
Gone before this lady...
All time is limited...
No one has a guarantee...

Tell people you love them...
Tell people they are important...
Thank God for each of them...

More About Judge Rembert: WWII made Judge an only child when her half-brother was killed in the war. She lived in a tiny town in South Carolina until she was eight and her Mother went to work. She was sent to a boarding school in Belmont, N.C. From that time on she has lived back and forth in the two Carolinas. They are both home. She was born dyslexic and did not know what the problem was or that it had a name until she was about 45. She was unable to spell so she never put words on paper until she was 65 and had a computer with spell check. She comes from a long line of story tellers and a Mother that taught her much by telling stories. Stories about people and how they faced life and how they dealt with problems. If you read what she writes you may hear her Mother and her Grandmother talking to her. She is thrilled to know that anyone reads her words and finds them interesting. Oh, she is 75 now and she now makes her home in Aiken, S.C. If you like Judge’s writings or would like to comment on them let her know by emailing judgerembert@bellsouth.net.
