The past few months have been a roller coaster of emotions. Having to move my mom after she was robbed in her home, packing up 60 years of living, prepping for an estate sale and selling my childhood home is not for the light hearted. I will say if you look for it, there are blessings in every situation. Even though it has been difficult I have found treasures along the way. After going through my parents belongings with a fine tooth comb I got a glimpse inside their life in a new way.
I am so grateful for the opportunity to have my mom to ask about the family pictures and memorabilia. Just the other day I stumbled upon a parcel of old letters. I opened one to see if it was trash or something to keep. As I read the love letter from my Dad to my Mom, tears streamed down my face. I opened another one from my Mom to my Dad and couldn’t put them down. They made me laugh, cry, and in that moment I could feel The love between two people that lasts an eternity.
Take time to tell the people in your life how much they mean to you. Tell someone how much you appreciate them. Reach out to a friend and tell them how grateful you are for being in your life.
Somewhere in the rush of daily life pause and give thanks. When we appreciate goodness in our lives we can look forward to the future with more optimism.
May God richly bless you and your family ❤️🙏
