Occasionally, I just have to share what’s on my mind. Over the last couple of years, our family has suffered our share of losses. I have not shied away from sharing about our grief and what we have learned. We are slowly learning to cope with all that loss means. I have to say that one of the biggest pieces I have taken away from loss is that no one really cares or remembered what you accomplished. While accomplishments can gain respect and applause, it’s the way you make others feel that will be remembered. A man that does great works in his lifetime but does not treat others well, is not remembered in high regard. Those that treat others with kindness, compassion, and love will be remembered for that no matter what successes they may or may not have met with. I guess I am just trying to realize that my kiddos will remember when I was grumpy or short tempered before they remember that I did well on a project. I am trying to put in check the moment to moment ways I make those around me feel. It is always relatively easy to begin and end the day on a high note. But the moments sandwiched in between can be challenging. I plan to post this in my home where I can have a gentle reminder about all that is truly important. My husband brought me these tulips. What I remember is how I felt when he did that. I felt loved. Case in point. Thanks for letting me share. Enjoy your day.
