Live Life…

October 29, 2012

When I woke up this morning; as I do every morning, I give thanks to God for allowing me to see another day.  Some did not wake up this morning…they went to bed last night with a load of ideas and things to do today…things they put off yesterday was supposed to have been completed today or sometime this week.  God had other plans for them, HE called them late last night or early this morning.  

We often take things for granted.  We complain when we have to walk a longer distance than anticipated when in fact, some would give anything to get up and walk.  We complain when we have to come home and cook dinner after a long day at work; when some have lost their jobs and can barely make ends meet. We complain about cleaning our house; when some have lost their homes.  We complain about how misbehaved our children are; when some have lost their child/children.

I say those things in order to say this:  Please appreciate your loved ones….your job…your home (no matter how small or shabby).  We can make plans before we go to sleep, but may not wake up the next morning to see it through.  

Live life to the fullest as if it where your last day on earth.  Tell your spouse you love him/her.  Tell your kids you love them.  Call that sibling up that you haven’t spoke to in a while.  Make mends with your parents, grandparents, friends; etc.  

You know the saying, “Here today, gone tomorrow.”

This concludes Mimi Jenkins’ Moment of Truth.
