Time has come for grandma to say goodbye. For her whole life she looked after the family with love. Grandma was a simple woman: church on Sunday, holidays spent with her kids, and let them grow up as they pleased. She had a rewarding family life. From her I learned about compassion and sacrifice.
There were times she felt regret for not having a career outside the home. And she said to me:
I had wanted so much from my life, to be a professional and work in an office. It was at the end that I realised my dreams had more than come true. It was in giving up what I had thought I needed that I found all that I desired.
Are you seeing your life as a great accomplishment? Though we may wish things to be different, the universe softly let us know this is exactly what we need.
How can I make the most of my present situation? What I can do to be of service? This is an opportunity to look at where we are today.
May I wish you contentment in who you are, and by servicing others you fill yourself with joy and precious memories.
