I wanted to tell you all a little something a
precious woman named Twila told me the other day.
We went to visit all the Residents at my hubby's work
and Twila comes up and she was just beaming with Joy
that she was able to see my boys.
She tells me "they are so well behaved"
and "they are just so adorable".
I told her Thank you so much, I really try my best.
She goes on to say with tears in her eyes
I always made the time to spend as many
moments and hours with my babies when they were little.
We always spent every hour of every day worth living.
I did the same thing with my grandchildren,
she goes on to say and now my grandchildren are in their 30's!
And you know what's sad?
They don't come by, they say they are too busy.
See, I invested my time in my children and my grandchildren
and now they just don't make the time to do the same.
She tells me your babies grow up way too fast,
enjoy them now and invest in them.
She gave my hand a gentle squeeze,
a tear runs down her face
and she says I'm so glad for moms like you
that make the time for little ladies like me.
This just broke my heart. I grieved for her.
We shouldn't be so busy with life that we can't invest time
in our families, friends, precious grandma and papa's.
Life is too short, to be too busy for a walk with a friend,
a baking day with your mom,
a date with your spouse,
a conversation with an elderly person...
the list is endless, really!
Our days are numbered here on this earth
Make the Time and Make them Count!
I hope you have a lovely day.
Thanks for stopping by!
In God's Grace,
