Those we have loved!
Today marks the anniversary of the passing of a good friend of
mine.I miss him.I often think of him and wonder what my life
would have been like without his influence.He certainly left his mark on my life.I am definitely a better person for having known him.His was a life cut short for no reason, other
than being in the wrong place at the wrong time.Why do I share this with you?It is so you will appreciate those you love
every minute they are here.With the blink
of an eye they could be gone. It is too late when they have passed to live with
regrets, to wonder what could have been, to think ‘only if’. Life is busy and
we are all guilty of saying ‘I don’t have time’ but stop and make time for
those you love.
In life there are times when we are filled with insecurities and
petty jealousies and, these cloud our judgement – do not let these spoil your
relationship with those you love.
Sometimes those we love have different opinions to our own – value their
judgement, and hold dear, that from diversity the world becomes a better
place. Sometimes those we love are
different – difference should be embraced and celebrated as, what a boring world
it would be if we were all the same.
Sometimes circumstances change and we are quick to judge – but do not
judge until you walk a mile in their shoes. Wouldn’t the world be a much better
place, a much kinder place, if we truly valued those we hold dear and made sure
that they knew they were valued every single day.
One of our missions at WinC Wrap in Cotton is to make the world a better place. We want to do business differently. We want our customers to feel valued, to feel part of our movement
to make the world a better place.The
philosophy of ‘pay it forward’ is entrenched in the foundation of WinC and any
community that embraces such philosophy can only move forward through the world
becoming more tolerant, more appreciative, more giving and more loving.Pay forward your gift wrap, just as you pay forward
your love and good deeds- wrap your
gifts in cotton.
'When you're lost and there's no where to go
And your heart bears a heavy load
Don't give up 'cos you are not alone
'Cos I am always here to bring you home'
