Hi, everyone. I am bringing to you my thoughts for today. Things have been changing much since I retired from the corporate world on October 14th, 2021. I am glad to finally make that move and spend more time growing in grace, writing, taking pictures, coaching, etc. A lot has changed already in these last two years for me.
My retirement so far has been bitter sweet as I have had to lay to rest my oldest son. It has been a sad occasion but at the same time has inspired me to share with you that each day is truly a gift. I speak on gratitude a lot and am totally grateful for the last couple years I had with him. We didn’t always agree but that was okay. Each of us have the right to make our own choices. When he died on November 10th, it was somewhat of a shock because it always seemed that he had more time. Not. Truly, life needs to be lived in the moment. Tomorrow is not guaranteed.
Since that time, I have made peace with his passing. Sure, I will miss him, even the challenging moments. However, my life has changed forever. I am more geared to saying what’s on my heart, spending time with my daughters and grandkids as well as telling those I love that I love them.
I would like to state that when you bring a child into this world, your life changes forever. When your child leaves this world before you, your life changes forever. A part of you is laid to rest. It is so surreal.
I encourage you to share your love with those you say you love. Say it, mean it, spend time breaking bread and enjoying them. Time is precious. It is the only commodity that truly makes everyone equal. We all have the same twenty-four hours. Make yours count.
