Day 6 #BKGratitudeChallenge :: Contemplate Endings
Imagine your life without who and what you love. Occasionally.
This strategy requires balance. Particularly for sensitive souls who feel sadness deeply. If you cry at movies be delicate with this practice.
The enemy of gratitude is taking life and loved ones for granted. When we consider our own death or that of a love one, it can remind us to enjoy each other and make dreams come true.
My mom suffered a series of health problems beginning last Thanksgiving. I feared losing her with each crisis and every time I talked her and she wasn’t doing well. And I felt helpless living across the country.
One weekend when she was feeling good she expressed interest in gathering the whole family under one roof for a vacation. We managed to make it happen during the summer.
I’m so grateful we made this dream come true. The photo is one of many shared moments: My niece (who’s interested in becoming a makeup artist) putting on mom’s makeup before we went out to dinner to celebrate my parent’s 50th anniversary. Next time I want to take more photos!
