Life Goes On
The holiday season is in full swing. Parties to go to. Presents to buy. Cards in the mail. And the Christmas blues.
That’s true for many people feel – in what is commonly called the most joyous season of all. Why?
One reason is that, as each year passes, those “faithful friends who are dear to us” can’t “gather near to us once more.” They have passed on.
But life goes on, complete with the memories of those dear ones. That’s something that can’t be taken away from you. So you can take heart in these two things:
- Your memories of your loved ones can’t be taken away.
Physically, they may be gone. But they’re still in your mind, your heart, and your soul.
Remember the good times you had with them. The lessons they taught you. How special they made you feel.
What they gave you. What you gave them. The kind words. The shared experiences. The joys. The trials – how you endured them.
Celebrate their life and renew yours, because …
- The memories you create for your loved ones will endure also.
You, too, are making memories. On that, you have no choice.
What can you do that will leave a lasting impression with a loved one today?
Call them. E-mail them. Send them flowers. Go out to lunch. Play a game.
Do something. Anything! It may only be a little thing. But it will be remembered for a lifetime … and then some.
At this time of year, more than any other, most of us reach out to family and friends. But remember that sometimes the things that are most memorable are the ones that are least expected. Make creating lasting memories a year-round obsession, because life goes on …
