- Elbert Hofstadter

Have you ever noticed how often we take things for granted? We assume that once something is in our possession, it will remain that way forever.

No one should be unduly surprised by loss– it is a normal fact of life.

Once we realize the reality of the fleeting nature of living, it is up to us to make the most of it. Whether money, friends, ideas, or our health, they will come and go unexpectedly.

We should do all we can reasonably do to maintain our relationship with these things of value. We also need to be grateful for the people and things already in our possession, and appreciate them while they are here just visiting.

The frantic pace of our lifestyle often shields us from this truth. We are so busy going through the motions or dealing with our “to do” list that we forget to enjoy life.

Think of someone you love that you haven’t talked with in awhile, and pick up the phone and call them today. Hug your parents, or your spouse, or a brother or sister, while you still have the opportunity.

Watch the magic. It will work on both of you.
