Mom's thoughts remind me to treasure life

The Daily Star

---- — Upon going through my mom’s (Lillian) belongings, since her passing recently Oct. 23, I was surprised to come across something she had written herself.

Something so beautiful. Something so true. Something I want/have to share, for a little light, inspiration, and will to live for ourselves and for all others.

“We are to be reminded that life here on Earth is so fragile, temporary, that we should spend time building, sustaining relationships, we should learn to treasure moments and memories, not take friends for granted!

None of us are perfect.

We should be more tender hearted and have concern for one another.

Allow for differences!”

So dear folks, please treasure your loved ones here, now, for once they are gone, they are gone forever.
