This past week has been hard on our family. My niece’s husband passed away suddenly and since she is about 800 miles away from me, it is really hard to give her any kind of emotional support. I can only imagine how hard it is for her and her family. He left behind my niece and four children (the youngest is 9 years old.)
I know my husband and I constantly talk about living in the moment because it could be your last but it is another thing to have this slap you in the face. No one wants to think about what it would really be like to lose a loved one.
So, this week, I started to keep a list of at least one sweet thing that my husband does for me each day. Usually he does many more than one but I know he does at least one thing at day and I don’t always make note of it so that I can appreciate it more. I am going to make more of an effort to show my appreciation for his love. If there comes a time when he is no longer here, I will be able to look at the list and feel some comfort at the memory of the many things he does for me.
I hope you take this time to really appreciate your loved ones. Appreciate them now while they are living and not wait until they are gone to notice how much they enrich your life.
