Today I was going to write about chronic pain and how the VA doesn’t really care about you and your pain, because through the years a lot of people have screwed it up so unless that limb or disk in your back isn’t falling off then they want you to make an appointment and when you finally get the chance to make an appointment it’s 3 months out. They only take it serious when you take matters in your own hands and start emailing the right people, but I’m not going to write about that, but enough about that and let’s get into the subject of today’s post.
I was on Facebook earlier today and just so happened to read a friends status and it inspired me to write about how we as human beings take life for granted. We automatically think that we are going to wake up and see the next day. Everyday, there is a person some where in this world that wasn’t able to get up this morning.
This is what that friend wrote that inspired me to write, I’m not going to put the whole post on here just a portion that gave me the inspiration to write this post: I know we all have things going on in our own personal lives, that occupy our time & as a result, it puts a distance in between you, family & friends. But, we never know when our time will come to return to the essence, so try your best to reach out to those ppl who are close to you, when you can. Because one day you will try to reach out & they won’t be able to reach back.
We expect the man up stairs for those that believe in God or a higher power or whatever you believe in (I’m not here to spark a religious debate) to wake us up to see tomorrow. No one knows and there is no calculator or psychic that can tell when your time is up or tell you when it’s your time. It’s crazy how you see many people advertise that by reading the palm of your hand, they can tell how long you are going to live or they take out a stack of cards with pictures on them that this person throws on a table and the one she picks up is going to tell you what your life is going to be in the future. GTFOH! I know that I have talked about this already in a previous post, but not this deep.
I know it’s difficult to keep in touch with all of your relatives, but with the invention of the computer and the internet that should make it a little easier. Some older people don’t like to mess with computers and really don’t know how to use them. Keep in mind that I said, “Some” not all. If you’re not close enough to your relatives, meaning distance, whenever you call home, let your family that you keep in touch with, tell that person, ie. Grandmother/Grandfather Aunt, Uncle, that you were thinking about that person and you would like the person you keep in touch with, to let that person know that you said hi or that they were on your mind.
I said all that to say this, as I stated in my previous post on this subject, you never know when your time will come so you should live everyday as if it was your last. I don’t know if a lot of you pray or what type of relationship you have with whoever your higher being is, but I urge you to pray and repent (repent is to feel or express sincere regret or remorse about one’s wrongdoing or sin) and make things right between you and your higher being, so that your life is spared and he blesses you to see another day. Don’t take close friends and family for granted, because you never know when your higher power will call them home.
