Taking Things for Granted

Before I say anything else, please know that I am one of those people who always tries to find the silver lining. There are times when it isn’t easy. But in most instances, I can find something.

I believe we all found the news about the Notre Dame fire in France mortifying. A treasured icon of the world suffering such damage is devastating. Please don’t think for one minute that I think otherwise.

I heard that one week after the fire, a billion dollars was already raised. Wow! Such great news. Interestingly enough, it’s been reported that Notre Dame has been undergoing renovation for years. And that they were struggling to raise funds.

We all assumed Notre Dame would be with us forever. But the thought that this beloved world treasure might actually be lost motivated many to action. 

Mankind is funny like that. We take things for granted. Our marriages, our children, our friends. We just assume they’ll be with us forever. We just assume they love us so it’s okay if we ignore them a little. But things happen. So let’s use this reminder to take a second and let people you love know you love them.

I think you’ll be glad you did.
