Every night, when my head hits the pillow, this thought hits my mind too, “Oh my, another day has passed… what have I done today?”
These days, time seems to pass even faster. I vividly remember the kids starting school on the first school day of 2015, and we’re now into the first week of the year end school holiday!
Events that have transpired in recent weeks have given me an even more sobering view towards cherishing the moment and treasuring the time we have with our loved ones. Often, it is only when we have lost something or someone that we begin to realise their importance.
In our busyness and juggling various roles in life, it is easy to take our loved ones for granted. When things are going on smoothly, it is easy to take our peaceful and problem-free life for granted too.
On this Thanksgiving Day, I want to be mindful of the peace I have and the dear ones in my life.
When my kids are still little and still need me, I want to be there for them.
When my parents are still healthy and fit, I want to spend time with them and bring them places.
When my marriage is still going on strong, I want to cherish my husband and our relationship.
I am thankful.
How about you?
