Many people around the globe, have a treasure they never enjoy,
When pain and sadness try to roost, there’s rarely a better decoy,
Yet these individuals ignore the resource, with no remorse ‘til some’s gone,
Then continue to do the same with the rest, staying stressed, not seeing what’s wrong.
They feel emotionally bankrupt, wishing riches would materialise,
Holding a winning lottery ticket, but never claiming the prize,
Cash it in, before it’s too late, as before long the chance expires,
Spend quality time with your family, before your luck, ups and retires!

The majority of us on this planet have a family, but it seems that many of us still don’t fully realise the importance of the gift we’ve been given.
The truth of the matter is, we don’t know how long each of us has left, and there is no magical hot tub time machine, that we can use to make amends for our regrets.
Yes, there may be relatives that you’ll never be close with (and probably justified reasons why), but I’m sure most of us have loved ones we care about greatly, but our actions and words do not always reflect this. Well, the time to do something about it, is now.
Even if it’s simply finding the time once a week (or whatever you can manage) to enjoy each other’s company, watching a film, having a deep chat, playing a board game, going for a nice stroll together, whatever it is, both of you won’t fully comprehend the huge value of those small gestures and memories, yet.
So please make the most of those precious opportunities today, your future self will thank you for it, believe me.
Love and Respect always,
