ones who we would more than likely die for. Family is important. The love
that is shared between families causes a bond that is so strong. Can you
imagine life without any family? It's hard to think about isn't it?
What if that person that you care about the most was no longer there? What
if your sister, brother, mother, or father was suddenly gone. Thinking about
the loss of a loved one is something no one wants to think about, but we live
each day as if our family members are going to always be here. We talk to
them and treat them any kind of way we want.
We do the same thing every day. Wake up, drop off kids, go to work, pick up
kids, and then go home. We get used to a routine. We are so used to the
people that are a part of our lives being there every day that it becomes easy
to forget to stop and think how much we love them. Most of the time when we
think about them we think about something they did wrong or something they
did that we didn't like.
If we knew what it was like to not have a loving husband or wife anymore, we
would appreciate them more. We would think about the things we love about
them. If we knew what it was like to not have a child to love anymore, we would
hug and love on our children more. How many times have you heard someone
say they wish they had said or done this or that before their loved one was gone?
We take each other for granted because right now we are here living and we
see each other every day. Stop and think about how much you love your family (Romans 12:10). It's funny how when someone is sick or dies we are quick to
forgive and forget and let them know how much we really love them, but why
can't we do that when they are living? Try your best to let the people you love
know that you love them as often as you can, whenever you can.
