Valentines Day, Mothers, Day,
Fathers Day, so many more.
What if we don’t get a Valentine or box of candy?
What if we don:t see all of our kids, or parents
or put flowers on their graves?
If we must have a special day to recognize those we love,
then our love is shallow and lacking.
If we do not recognize them on these “special days”.
We are not appreciative, thoughtless…
Think of those you love every day, tell them every day,
love them every day. All of your lives will be much richer.
Today, I did not eat with all my kids,
I put flowers on my mom’s grave and my then-15 year old sons.
Today, I stood in line to eat lunch with part of them,
my lonely father order food he didn’t want and didn’t eat.
Having a friend take a photo of my son and I with my flowers.
Or my son showing me bullfrog tadpoles, meant much more.
Remember how short time is and how much today means.
Take the little treasures and keep them, for soon they slip away.
