A few days ago, I enjoyed a wonderful evening with a group of good friends. We played games, had a few drinks and engaged in great conversations. On yesterday, I wrote personal letters to ten family members and took it to each of their homes. Every so often, I call my friends and family to touch base with them and stay informed about their lives.
I believe that we as people need to set aside specific time to bond with the ones we love. With the everyday struggles of life (i.e, bills, work, children, co-workers), it is so easy to miss out on precious moments…moments we can never ever get back (I suppose that’s why I take so many pictures…I truly enjoy capturing unforgetable moments).
But nowadays, people are so caught up in social media, (texting and tweeting) that they neglect to call and check up on their loved ones. We post everything on Facebook and Twitter; but we fail to realize that everyone is not apart of that technological world. Gone are the days where we communicate in person.
However, I encourage everyone to take out time to write letters, make phone calls and physically visit with your loved ones; because I guarantee you, those smiles and those tears, will certainly be worth the effort.
