We never really think about death until it’s knocking at our door. When we consider the finality of this life, it shakes us to the core.
Why do we encounter such tragedies and unhappy moments in this life?
There is always something going on and it’s not always good news. The lessons we learn on our journey can be satisfying and others extremely painful.
I was in the hospital recently visiting my dad, who has serious difficulties. Dad is 88 years of age and is not in good condition. It breaks my heart to see what he’s going through.
This was so unexpected to his family….
Having said that, next to my father is a 25 year old young man who is suffering with brain injuries from a motorcycle accident. He has no chance of surviving.
I can’t imagine what his family is experiencing. On one hand my dad has lived a long time by today’s standard. It saddens me that his life is hanging in the balance.😪
Then I look at this young man whose life is shortened in one quick moment. As a mom it breaks my heart to see his life ending so abruptly.
He has so much living ahead of him and the ups and downs of this life is sweeping it all away.
Only by the power of prayer and a miracle will he be able to walk out of that hospital. But his prognosis is serious.
Life is a battle at times and no matter how much we try, unfortunately we can’t escape from what may come our way.
The battle is real and we are at the forefront of it everyday not knowing when it will rare its ugly head. We must fight and never give up to the unpredictability of this life.
All we can do is try to live our best, be at our best and let God take care of the rest. Why?
That’s because we are not in control of things that are unseen. We have no idea what the future holds for any of us.
On a positive note, be thankful, praise God in spite of life’s mysteries. Trust God regardless of the circumstances.
Give God thanks and praise as you go through the storms of life and the ability to overcome the difficult times.
Thank him also for the special people he’s placed in all of our lives and for the time we were given to share together.
For those of you who are writers and bloggers, you know how time consuming putting together a post can be. But when you love to write, it’s a labor of love.
I did all my research and spent several hours editing and making sure everything looked great.
Just as I completed my tags and categories, I went back to hit publish and it was gone..
Unfortunately I was left with a revision I did a couple of weeks ago. At first I tried to recover it myself.
I contacted support and they tried to help me find the missing post.
They tried to retrieve it but all they found was the old revision. I just wanted to cry.
Has this ever happened to anyone else?
I’ve been blogging for a couple of years and this is the first time anything like this has happened to me.
I felt my whole day was a waste of precious time…
If anyone can give me suggestions for future posts, I would appreciate it..
I never want to go through that again….
Perhaps others can learn from my experience.
Here we go again…
Sunday was such a beautiful day especially this time of the year.
The sun was shining, birds was singing and it was such a warm and refreshing day.
I was extremely inspired to do something anything but sit home.
People are much nicer this time of the year.
After all it’s spring…
This season brings out the best in people and it shows.
There are many cars on the road causing slower traffic movements.
But who cares…it’s Sunday, time to go out and have some fun.
Wow, how time flys..
Pretty soon you’re prepping for the inevitable..
The Monday morning blues. It’s time to get back to work or school or anything in between.
I don’t know what it is about Monday’s that just makes my jaws drop.
You go from a Friday high to a Monday low.
The thought of resetting your life back to one of working for the next few days on a job that is mediocre at best makes my skin crawl.
Don’t worry I’m working on that aspect of my life…seriously all kidding aside…
You should to if you’re not happy where you are…
Know where you are going and have a plan.
Live your passion and maybe Mondays will inspire your dreams rather than crippling your thinking.
That’s the great motivator to improving the quality of your life.
By Tuesday you’re set in you’re groove and you’re great. Ready to put your pedal to the metal.
You’re already prepping for the next weekend…
Thank God it’s only a few hours before your day is finally over.
Here’s to Tuesday….
I thought she would be around much longer. Sometimes life throws you an unexpected curve.
The initial shock leaves one in a state of disbelief as you continue to pick up the pieces of her life left behind.
Some of us have gone through this experience. You’re left with a hole in your life that a mothers love will no longer be able to fill.
Sometimes on my way to work I would reach for the phone to call her as we talked about any and everything.
Now she is no longer here…..
Almost one year ago, I lost my mom due to a ruptured aneurism. She was 87 years old and went home to meet the lord.
This first Mothers day without her is difficult and weighing very heavily on my mind.
We were mom and daughter but we were also best friends.
She was special strong and full of spirit. A prayer warrior, mom was always praying for our family and others who had their battles.
Her death took our family by surprise because the symptoms showed up unexpectedly. She died within a week.
There is a lesson to be learned as we go through our life experiences.
Never take your mom for granted. Thank her and let her know how much she’s loved and appreciated because you never know what tomorrow will bring.
This Mothers day I would like to honor all the mother’s who work hard to take care of their families.
For those whose lost their moms, remember the good memories you shared.
Mom I miss you and you will always be in my heart.
