Love people and use things. Not the other way around. Our relationships are the high points of our lives. That may include our faith relationship. Those relationships are the most precious gifts that we receive. Our sweetest memories we have maybe of our children’s laughter, our friend’s understanding or looking into the eyes of someone who really loves us. Just as we are. Warts and all.
We have a tendency to worry about our “stuff” or having more “stuff”, which is important & necessary, but are we forgetting the most important things? Are we nourishing the relationships of those we love & who love us? Are we “checking in” with the ones we need to “check in” with?
Take a minute this week to call or send a note to that loved one & remind them how much they mean to you. Tell them how much they have enriched your life by being an important part of your journey.
Yes, then take care of the “stuff” too. It is necessary & important. It needs to be maintained & planned for, which includes planning for your stuff & more importantly, your loved ones in your Estate Plan.
