Never Take Life For Granted (Catch-Up Edition)
Wednesday, July 11, 2012
Well, this has been an interesting two weeks (well, it's been a long time since my last blog post here)
Since my last post, I’ve dealt with unusual storm activity, holiday reflection, heatwaves, and other challenges. In addition, I reflected on the life celebrations of three people. One of them was my mother and July 6 would’ve been her 63rd birthday. For those who follow my blog on wordpress, she was the inspiration for me in creating it. I still haven’t forgotten the promise made: to pursue & maintain a healthier lifestyle.
Recently, I’ve been going to the gym with my roommate as a guest. The workouts are later at night due to not many people being in the gym. It’s really good to get back on the treadmill or cross track machine while listening to music (you know I MUST have music LOL). For me, I’ll have to do something right after work, so I found a Zumba class near me to join. Stay tuned….
I reflected on this particular scripture (can’t remember the book or chapter): “We neither know the day nor the hour.” Two people I knew were called on by God this past week; both women, both young. I just saw a video posting from one of them a day or two before she lost her human life in a car crash. Hence the title for my blog post today.
One moment, someone you know can leave this earth without warning. That’s why it’s highly encouraged to do what you can and to stay in touch with others. I know for me, it’s a task that I know needs to be done. In addition, we must take better care of ourselves. I’m seeing more of my peers die at an alarming rate from several diseases and disorders. Some of us didn’t realize how sick other people were!
These life experiences are a constant reminder to never take life for granted.
NOTE: I would insert a link to Ledisi’s “bgty (be good to yourself)” but I couldn’t find one LOL!!
