Why is it that when something tragic happens in our lives, we tend to sit and think about EVERYTHING? We tend to get this eagerness to call everyone you love and tell them how much they mean to you. We tend to go over our memories and appreciate our lives just a little more than usual. These feelings and thoughts stay there for a few minutes, days and sometimes even weeks or months.
But why can’t we ALWAYS feel this way? Why can’t we always (or usually) call everyone we love and tell them how much they mean to us? why can’t we value and appreciate life every day? Even if its for a few minutes a day?
About a week ago, I thought I might lose a family member… I have only been to 3 funerals in my life and I wasn’t ready for another one any time soon (or ever). And of course this made me stop and think about EVERYTHING. Thankfully my cousin is okay, not as great as we all hoped (yet) but at least he is alive.
But it’s just so sad to think that things like this have to happen in order for us to get a reality check. Or for us to appreciate the smaller things. I don’t know how long this feeling will last but I hope it lasts for ever. Just so I can actually live.
So there is this bunny in my house who’s name is Tommy Thomas. And he likes to nibble on my charger. He eats carrots from my mouth and I hate how he smells lately. But when the day comes that he has to go, i will be terribly sad. So until then, I will let him nibble my charger and eat as many carrots as he’d like. :) and he can smell too
