Sometimes I find myself taking the people in my life for granted by assuming that they will always be there whether I nurture the relationship or not. Then when tragedy strikes, I ask myself why I didn’t call them or see them more often. It takes but a moment to reach out to your loved ones and with today’s technology, there really is no excuse not to. Life is a gift meant to be treasured. It is a gift from God that you can only hold onto for a short period of time.
