Today was a gift as my parents are back in town visiting and we were able to celebrate my Dad’s birthday with him🎉🙏💝
The little moments together, like this one, are ones I took for granted when they lived close by. Now that they live in NC, I am recognizing that every bit of time I get with my parents, and being able to celebrate birthdays beside them, is truly a gift🎁
I share this with you today in case you too have taken a relationship, and/or time with a loved one for granted. I invite you to join me to...
Pause. Breathe. Pray.
Whether we are near or far, may we treasure the gift of time we have together. May we be present for the moments we get and celebrate one another, on birthdays - or on any day for that matter!
As always, it’s easier said than done. Yet the saying is true, “you don’t know what you’ve got ‘til it’s gone.” May we realize what we have while we have it. And even when we don’t get the quantity of time we desire, may we make up for it in the quality of our time together💗
With gratitude and hope,
