One day you will wish you could get today back …

Is there someone in your life you’re taking for granted?

Consider this …

One day you will come home, and there will be no one there to listen to your complaints about how bad things are at work or school.

One day … the person who has always been there waiting for you to arrive, happy that you made it home safely, hoping they can cry on your shoulder because maybe — just maybe — they had a tough day too — won’t be there to patiently wait for you to ask how their day went.

One day … the food that person spent time preparing for you … the food you wolfed down before anyone else at the table had been served … will do nothing to satisfy your hunger because food alone can’t feed a lonely, starving soul.

One day … you will realize the time you spent pointing out the things that weren’t quite up to your expectations was a waste of time because those things were perfect just the way they were.

One day … your list of things to do will be cast aside.  Not because you’ve run out of things to do, but because the one with whom you did them is no longer there to share them with you.

One day you will give everything you have to get back the moments you took for granted.

But one day … it will be too late.

Start appreciating and recognizing those with whom you share your everyday lives.

Because “one day” may be closer than you think.

I've been in a writer long enough to know that change is not only inevitable, it's what keeps us going. Don't fight it, don't fear it. Embrace it and have fun.
