Isn’t it true that it is often easier to give advice than take it on board yourself? How sad it is that in doing so we often miss out on the opportunity of living more fully.
So today I took my own advice and spent a nice portion of it taking time to have a meal with my wonderful Mum and Grandma, and helping them both out with the shopping. True, I had to get my shopping anyway, so it helped me, but, more importantly, it was so much more fun than going solo.
I will never get those hours back but it doesn’t matter. If I had to live them again I would do just the same. Time is a gift, I once wrote. Today I made the right decision in giving the most precious gift I could to two of the most precious people in my life. I hope I’m brave enough to remember this lesson again tomorrow.
