I visited with a client yesterday who recently had to give up driving. After we were done talking "business" we sat at the kitchen table and chatted about anything and everything. She feels so stuck. She has a big family and they take her wherever she needs to go, and she has friends that just pop in to say hi. Her sadness, however, comes from her loss of control. She is now dependant on others for rides. This must be an aweful feeling. On the filp side, her daughter now comes over every Sunday and they go to church together. Another daughter calls her every night on her way home from work. My Grandpa just happen to tell me last week, after his brother past away, that he will miss the phone call he had with his brother every Sunday. This all gets me thinking how I need to get better about reaching out to loved ones just because. We can't wait for something to happen to force us to be better about just stopping by nor do I want to be regretful because I did not make it a point to call someone on a weekly basis just to say hi. It is the little things in life that make a difference. So to all of you who I may not have said it to lately : "you are special to me and I am greatful for the time we have spent together and look forward to memories we will create".
My office has been busy as I tried to blog so I apologize if I did not make much sense today. At any rate, enjoy your day, tell someone you love them, and do a random act of kindness - it really will make the world a better place!
