It’s amazing how much attention we pay to memorial services, and how much energy and money we spend to remember the dead, while we forget the living and their deeds of love and kindness. We go through all kinds of troubles to remember the dead, and there is nothing wrong with this, but we rarely remembered to thank them, love them, or even recognize them while they were alive.
I believe that lying deep in the heart of everyman is the need for recognition. The need to be loved, and remembered while they are alive. When we do that, it will inspire people to do more, and live more.
When was the last time you remembered someone who has done you some good in the past, to send them a note, a mail, or even give them a call? can you imagine what difference that will make in the life of that person? Just imagine someone calling you from the blues and reminding you of something nice you did to them a long time ago. You may even have forgotten, but then, they remind you and thank you for it. Imagine the feeling of love and appreciation that you will feel, knowing that they didn’t have to do that.
It’s great to remember the good deeds of the dead, but even greater to remeember the good deeds of the living.
Remember someone today for their good, and you too will be remembered.
Enjoy the rest of the month of July for it your month of rest!
