A friend went home to Heaven yesterday...to Paradise...to the real thing, not to some imagined Paradise, but to the beauty and magnitude of our Heavenly home! And even though we miss the conversations, the love shared, the special times with our loved ones, we are always glad they are in no more pain or no more sorrow.
Because of her loss, I have had my eyes open more to the fact that we need to enjoy every day! We don't know how long we are on this earth, so we need to make an impact whether it is in our home, our workplace, our city, or bigger! We were put on his earth for a reason and a good reason. We need to listen and love those hurting whether physically or mentally! We need to be there for the mom who is frazzled because her child has thrown the third tantrum that day, or the man whose boss has been on him for days for whatever reason, or the waitress who has too many demanding tables.
Look around and see the people who need you! They are everywhere! About the time you think no one cares, just realize you could be the person who steps out, and touches lives with a little love, a kind gesture, or an open ear, and change someone's life! Be that someone today, and change your world!
Hi, I am Sharon Farmer. I am married, have a great son and sweet daughter-in-law, my parents moved down here years ago, so we share a house (Mom passed away almost two years ago now), and I am ready for a change in my life....hence the blog!
