In this kind of days, as many have to come to realize, I too found out how many things I’ve been missing out, so many little happiness that I’ve taken for granted. Family, friends, church – from the little flowers that bloom to the sun that rises in the east – all these things are a total manifestation that God is real and He is great – He is the giver of Life and He takes away life. He holds our life in His hands and all of these blessings come from Him. We only have to acknowledge it and accept it.
Its true. And I lack on that part. The acknowledging and accepting part. Sometimes I could be a little proud, ignoring the tiny events in life that makes great happiness to others, thinking there is always something greater and grander than that. Sometimes I could be snobbish to the little things like plants and dogs. But as days fly by, and as I grow older, those little things suddenly seem to matter so much. A sure sign that I am comprehending what living is all about.
I could regret those times that I never showed how much I cared about someone or something but rather it taught me a harsh lesson now that every tiny details in life, every single event, must be taken all at heart, must be enjoyed and must be treasured. Life is too short to spend in regrets, complaints and worries. Because sure enough we can never know when God will take it all away from us. And there goes the cliche – Live. Laugh. Love.
So here’s a little gratitude tags I tend to ignore..
Family Gatherings. They happen often so its often quickly forgotten. But it all happens for a reason. 🙂
