I spend so much of my time either thinking about, talking about or dealing with Sarcoidosis these days. It can be difficult to step outside of that mind set. One thing that has hit me recently, however, is that as time flies by I need to remember to breathe and to be sure I do not let every day “moments” pass me by without notice. It is easy to get caught up in things, like the every day pitfalls of our disease, that may seem important to us, so much so that we miss the moments that really are!
My children are the joy of my life. I cannot imagine what my life would be like without them. Two of them are already grown and out of the house. One is going to be going off to college in less than a year. My baby is going to be 15. Where did the time go? Every moment we spend with our children is precious and we can never get those moments back.
Take the time to love your children. Cherish each and every “moment” you make with them. These moments are what become your memories and these memories are what you can hold on to when the world is cold and lonely.
There is a song called “Moments like these” that expounds upon what I am trying to covey. Turn up the sound, close your eyes, and listen closely to what is says as you soak it all in. And always Take time to breathe while cherishing “Moments Like These.”
