I am sitting here on the day before Christmas Eve and wondering what my Family is doing. The Sandy Hook event is teaching us that you only can take that moment for granted, because the next moment, we may not be here. I do not know why an event like this is making people think about their loved ones and friends.
I have moved here to Guilford from Wallingford, Ct nearly 18 years ago. I lost most all connection with my side of the family that live in Wallingford. I do not do this on purpose. It just happened. My 2 other brothers got married and become busy with life of their families, we just let the time slip right by. Now, my oldest brother just got though a rough divorce, and I was just too busy to see if he needed me.
It is also hard to get up to Wallingford when most of time my wife and I did not even have a car. My work schedule is not that great either when I picked a career in retail. But somewhere in the past 20 years I just lost the track of time. We ask ourselves that all the time.
I can even say that over the years, I should of, could of, and would of done things to help my family or friends out. I keep on saying I will do it tomorrow. Remember, we may not have tomorrow. We lived though the past “The World will end on…..” event just this past week. God said in the good old book, He will never tell us when Jesus will come again. So I will try this coming year to turn the could of, should of around to I did. I did do this for that people. I did do what that people ask me to do because they do not have the knowledge or skill that the good Lord gave me as a gift, a gift to bless others with. Let us all do that. Go visit that friend that you been being to visit, Skype that family member. Take this new age tech to a new level and use it to touch some one’s heart.
I will also say that I am blessed to have a job to do what I love to do, helping customers and touching their lives everyday. So I many complain about the company I work for and who does not do that. I love the customers that have touched me in a special way that they do.
I will end this by saying that Amanda and I both would like wish everyone a Merry CHRISTmas. We hope that you enjoy whatever you are doing that day.
