This week Stephen and I celebrated our 13 year anniversary🥂and our little ones 5th birthday🎈Woven into the joy of those days was also an appreciation that I was here to celebrate these special moments in life with my loved ones. Having cancer has made me realize how I have taken things like anniversaries and birthdays for granted, but I won't any more!
Have you subconsciously taken those things for granted too? If so, I invite you to join me and...
Pause. Breathe. Pray.
Each person in our lives is a gift to be treasured. We need to take the opportunities we have to celebrate one another, not just on anniversaries and birthdays but everyday. As the saying goes, "the trouble is, you think you have the time."
So today, whether it's your anniversary, a loved ones birthday or not, say what you need to say to them from your heart, surprise them with that note, call or random little gift. Take the time today to celebrate your loved ones and make the memory that will last forever and will leave us with no regrets.
"Every good and perfect gift is from above." - James 1:17
