Thought this was a brilliant depiction of appreciating the invaluable people in our lives.
You don’t know what you have until you don’t have it anymore.
Often, people become lazy in their relationships or they stop appreciating what/who they have–we end up taking them for granted, not paying them our loving attention or worse mistreating them.
But one day, those people won’t necessarily be there for us anymore.
That’s when our eyes are opened to what we’ve done, but then it’s too late to go back and undo the mistakes we made.
One good friend told me that marriage is not like Hollywood; it’s not all loving all the time:
“There are good days and bad, but it’s better to have 5 even really bad days a month with your partner than 30 bad days a month by yourself, alone.”
Don’t wait until it’s too late to love and care for your spouse, children, grandchildren, etc.
Eventually, the clock runs out and regret won’t bring anyone back.
