Often it is not until we’re faced with illness, catastrophe or end of life that we realize the importance of enjoying our minutes…our days. It may sound small, or repetitive but it’s worth repeating: take advantage of the now and relish the gift of life and friendship. Prioritize and spend time with loved ones. Sit across the table with a cup of tea or coffee and listen to their stories. Cherish your conversations and savor the opportunity. Fill your memory bank for later life reflection.
