At the last moment of farewell, we both knew that we had been taking each other for granted all these years and there was a moment of silence acknowledging the regret.
Saying goodbye is not one of my fondest moments. In fact this goodbye made me reflect on two other goodbyes that have changed my life. I never got to tell these two special people on how thankful I was for their presence in my life. I took them for granted thinking that they will always be there, that there will be a better time to tell them that I love them and sometimes I just assumed that they should know how much I care. Little did I know, God had other plans and my final goodbyes were said at their funerals.
We all have much to be thankful for. In this month of Thanksgiving, let’s not forget about all the good things that God, our friends and loved ones have done for us. Don’t take God and everyone for granted as the Bible warns that in the last days, people will become more selfish and less thankful.
Let’s find a way to say thank you and show gratitude to the people around you so that when it is time for you to say goodbye to them, your goodbye will not be filled with regrets.
2 Timothy 3:1-2 (KJV)
This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy.
