THE KEEPER

One day a mother died.

And on that clear, cold morning,
in the warmth of her bedroom,
the daughter was struck with
the pain of learning that sometimes
there isn't any more.

No more hugs,
no more lucky moments to celebrate together,
no more phone calls just to chat,
No more 'just one minute'

Sometimes, what we care about the most goes away.
never to return before we can say good-bye,
Say 'I Love You.'

So while we have it ..... it's best we love it ...
And care for it and fix it when it's broken
and take good care of it when it's sick.

This is true for marriage.... and friendships
And children with bad report cards;
And dogs with bad hips;
And aging parents and grandparents
We keep them because they are worth it,
Because we cherish them!

Some things we keep --
like a best friend who moved away
or a classmate we grew up with.
There are just some things that makeus happy,
No matter what.

Life is important,
and so are the people we know
And so, we keep them close!

I received this from someone today
who thought I was a 'KEEPER'!

Then I posted this in my blog
Specially for my readers whom I think of in the same way !

May your troubles be less,Your Blessings be more,
And nothing but Happiness
Come through your Door.

Patience is not passive; on the contrary, it is active; it is concentrated strength."

HAVE A NICE DAY!

*Many thanks to Angela who sent me this article which I modified a bit for this post.

Awwh..so sweet..so very nice!
How true..but we have the tendency to always take things for granted until we cannot have them anymore..

I did take my late mum for granted a lot..its been 3 years now..if only I can hug her even for a minute and tell her how much I love her..ahh!

Dear Datin Mamasita

I know what you mean...and we have both blogged about this before :-( and yet, the sense of regret is still in our hearts even after all these months....:-(

Take care and cherish everyday and everyone who matters...
