Each Day is a Gift

Six months. How has it been half a year since you left us on earth and went to your heavenly home?

In a previous post, I detailed out what the last 5 months have been like.  These past couple of weeks could be summed up with the word WEEPY.

I think of you often, which brings me to tears.  Getting back into normal life and fellowship with friends brings me to tears,  because I know you would have enjoyed being there with us, and the conversations we have, and would have brought a whole different,  better, dynamic to it all! Looking at the picture and post memories on social media brings me to tears. You were always so active and present in our lives.

Looking ahead to the next few months brings me to tears. It will be our first Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years without you, but also our youngest daughter’s birthday AND your birthday are coming up. All of these happy events, dampened by the reality of missing your presence.

Why am I saying all of this? It’s just a reminder that, even though life may not be sunshine and roses for the person reading this right now, and things may not be going the way they want them to, every day is a gift! And you need to live it, laugh, have fun, and enjoy the experience called life. Because the next day is never promised!

I am SO thankful that is what you did! Because we do have these beautiful memories with you….of you!

“This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalm 118:24 ESV
