Reflect on your family, your friends or the place where you live, and the satisfaction they bring you. Recognizing what you’re grateful for helps keep things in perspective as we all know life is too short.
Gratefulness will always carry you through the tough times, and gives you the strength to surpass the stress of challenges we all face from time to time. And, we all go through life with some form of stress.
We all appreciate the pleasure when you receive from a phone call with a friend or an email that allowed you to laugh with your children or viewing the old family album and reminiscing when your children were young and so were you.
Sometimes the small things in life outshine the big things – some of my friends enjoy the affection of a pet, and others like me love crafts and others enjoying a day on the golf course or a deep and fulfilling relationship.
I just recently lost another sibling. It is painful. Rest in Peace ……… Sister, Tina.
Each family has its own special history and the shared bonds that are a part of that history. When a sibling dies, the bonds are shattered, and the history forever has a void that cannot be filled.
When your parents die, it is said you lose your past; when your spouse dies, you lose your present; and when your child dies, you lose your future. However, when your sibling dies, you lose a part of your past, your present, and your future.
Take the time to reflect and nourish the gratitude and spend more time with your family.
