Take One Minute

For the past couple of weeks, things have been quite stressful and sad for me, and the people around me. We've gone through some tough moments and will go through more tough moments in time to come. Diseases, sicknesses, hospital trips and tragic accidents have been a few of the things that have happened to good people I know and have affected a lot of loved ones around me. I think everyone out there has gone through some or most of these things, or know those who have.

I've grown to realise and appreciate every minute I am alive on this earth. Every minute you're able to breathe is so precious and I thank God that I am able to wake up tomorrow. And I'm thankful for loved ones around me who are also able to do the same.

I want everyone to do something for me right now. Just take one minute and text message or give a quick call to your partner, mum, dad, sisters, brothers, anyone you love in your life and just tell them you love them. Just spend one minute writing a simple "I love you" text message to those loved people around you. We don't say it enough to each other, and you never know when those people will have their last minute on this earth. Don't have any regrets, don't wait til tomorrow and don't hold any grudges. Time is precious.

I totally agree with you and have come to the same conclusion lately.

My uncle has cancer, my sister's boyfriend's 4 year old son has cancer, I see sickness and tragedies everywhere... And like you know, my dad died from cancer 4 years ago.

So like you, I'm thankful and grateful for what I have and I want to be a ray of light in the middle of all this dark...

I'm sorry that you've been stressed out and sad lately. Here's a BIG HUG for you!

Boy can I relate to interuptions in the health area. I have fibro, long story, so I think rest is the most important way to heal along with sleep and time for yourself. I'm sending you my healing angels and you are in my prayers!
You feeling good again is the most important!
