Has there ever been a right time to say goodbye to your loved ones? Hmmm…
A lot of people want to live forever and don’t think about death at all. Life can be taken away from you in a blink of an eye. No one’s promised tomorrow.
why do some of us still take people for granted?

It didn’t hit me until my grand mum passed away a couple of weeks ago. She was in her late 70’s and didn’t have the greatest health. I still didn’t see it coming… She was the last one, the only grandparent I had left… She was immortal to me, just like my parents. Nobody likes to think about their parents dying, let alone other family members and friends. But a day will come where everyone’s time on earth will run out…

I wish I made more of an effort when she was alive. I should have contacted her more and paid her more visits to build more memories. But now she’s gone
I don’t want to bring your mood down and I’m not trying to throw myself a pity party by writing this blog. All I’m trying to say is: Make time for your loved ones.
Spend more time with your loved ones, make more phone calls and laugh more with each other. In fact, have a scroll through your phone book right now. How many of your friends and family members have you not spoken to or even seen in ages?
Let’s come out of the habit of saying ‘I’ll call them tomorrow’. They might not be there tomorrow… Life is too short so let’s make a change today by spending more time with our loved ones.

R. I. P. Grandma. Love you so much. You’re in a better place now. Until we meet again…

Sugars and love,

  1. I’m so sorry for your loss. My deepest condolences. Life is really short, grandparents are so valuable in our lives, they play such a different role to our parents and I understand what you said about it feeling like they are immortal.

    You gave good advice to readers to contact loved ones that you haven’t spoken to in a while.

    May your grand mum rest in eternal peace.
