It’s good to be reminded to love and appreciate our dear ones while we have them with us because we never know what a day may bring.
I have experienced a lot of separations. Have you?
I chose to go overseas for a few years when I was younger. It was a good experience, but I missed my mom, and I’m sure she missed me.
Now two of my older children live in different states from me, one of them a good 12 hours drive farther than the other.
Some of my dad’s relatives live in France. My mom’s relatives live on the east coast. No matter where I go on this earth, I am separated from someone I love.
So, it’s important that I make the most of the time I am able to spend with each one, to rejoice in each moment of positive connection, whether it be in person, by phone, by text or messenger, etc.
I need to work on it more. Do you?
Today I am thankful for my loved ones and for the connections we are able to have, whether face to face or heart to heart by other means.
God has blessed me so much, and I need to keep that thought at the forefront of my mind and heart!
How about you? Can you give me some tips on ways you stay connected and show love to your loved ones?
