I'm a mother myself and it reminds me that not only do our children grow up so fast, so do we, so do our parents, our grandparents and even for some our great grandparents.
The older generation have such a special place in my heart, it amazes me the wisdom and strength that each one carries, the life time of stories on the tip of each tongue just waiting for a kind ear to take the time to listen for awhile and allow them to reflect on their lives in happiness and sadness, in joy and laughter. So easy for each of us to get busy in our lives and forget that one day soon we will be that very same generation, and while we are constantly given the message to slow down and smell the roses..do we? Do we really take the time to just breathe once in a while, to reflect on how far each of us have come in our lives, to tell our story? Or do we wait till that moment when it's on the tip of our tongue and we are just waiting for a kind ear to listen.
It amazes me this life, how we go full circle just as the letter portrayed. Life is so short..remind yourself in this moment to take the time to be that kind ear once in awhile, to pick up the phone, to have a cup of tea with someone, and always remember to let those special people in your life know just how much you love them. We really never know what may happen tomorrow.
Much Love to all,
