Throwback Thursday: A reminder of what we forget – Everyday!

This was first posted over two years ago. I find it’s still an excellent reminder of some of the most important things we forget, that we shouldn’t!

I FORGOT…

…to water the special plant that was given to me by someone I love.

But I think it’s too late now anyway.

**

I forgot to feed the animals this morning.

Oh that’s right I forgot to buy food for them when I was at the store

yesterday picking up the food I ran out of for the family.

**

I forgot to visit my grandparents yesterday,

they had called and asked me to drop by. I guess they needed

Some help with something, but it was a hectic day with

all sorts of interruptions.

**

I forgot to go to my child’s class rehearsal last night

darn, it was important too, he has a big role in the school play.

**

I forgot to wish my best friend a happy birthday today. It was a special one too.

But between work, and kids and worry about bills,

The day just got away with me.

**

I forgot to remember  – when I woke up this morning –

to give thanks for what I increasingly take for granted, and I forgot to make a

Positive difference for anyone besides myself.

**

I have a to-do list but it’s gotten pretty long so I’ll make

A new one tomorrow – unless I forget!

Our lives are so busy today, with schedules and routines and structured types of “to-do’s”, that what is frequently forgotten – is taking the time to love, to share, to care and to be there, for others.

With affection,

  1. Normally I remember your TBT’s but I didn’t remember this one. It was like reading it again for the first time. I really like this, and yes, we do let things run away with us and we should make time for the important things in life.

    Hope your week has been good for you.

Thank you for your thoughts!
