Today was my Mum’s 80th birthday and we all gathered as a family and celebrated with cards, presents and cake etc.
Afterwards, I took a moment to say some words to celebrate her life and to reminisce and to talk about an amazing life full of achievements and milestones, but also to add about all the things that she had done for me and the family. To thank her and show our collective appreciation.
I’m not saying this to blow my own trumpet, the point is to say the kind things about people now, at this moment, whenever and as often as you can.
Often we wait for funerals to send flowers and more importantly, to say kind words about people who matter.
Show appreciation now, don’t wait, let the people who matter in life hear the kinds words in their ears, as none of us knows what is around the corner.
