Sometimes we take things for granted. Items, people, health. Then suddenly it is gone and we have none of it. Our friend goes, we find we are unable to do something, we fall ill.
Then we see what we have lost and wonder how we will cope with what we had before but is now gone.
That is when we have to learn again, and this time, hopefully, the lesson leaves a mark on us we don’t forget. We don’t take the friendship for granted, we look at it as a two-way street. We find another version of the item we lost and put it to better use. We learn to live with our new abilities while refraining from calling them disabilities.
Speak to your friends. Let them know how much you care.
Look after the items. Keep them safe.
Look after yourself. It is the only you that you have.
