I’ve been laying in bed, staring at my Mac for the last 20 minutes and thinking about something clever and witty to write about. Or really just something at all. Anything.
I went to our farm today to celebrate my sister’s birthday. Well, it really isn’t a farm, but it’s been in the family for a long, long time.
There are so many memories tied to that place that sometimes I get overwhelmed by them all and I start missing the people in my life that I used to see there. Today, I missed both my uncles and my grandparents in a way that was almost tangible.
Perhaps, the part to remember isn’t how much I miss them, but how lucky and blessed I was to have them in my life, even if that time didn’t seem long enough.
It reminds me to cherish the ones who are still in my life because I don’t ever know how long any of them will be there.
Maybe even I should cherish each day that I’m given because I (along with everyone else) am not guaranteed a tomorrow.
