CHERISHED LOVED ONES
Have you ever sat real, real still
and thought of those whom you
you love the most?
Tonight, I am doing just that. I
am thinking of my mother, my father
and my sister. I'm thinking of my
four wonderful children.
As I do this, a question comes to
mind: Do I cherish them enough?
Oh, we may work and make a living
for them. We may make enough money
to adequately provide for their material
and social needs. But this simply providing
for them, and it is simply not enough.
We also need to cherish our love ones.
According to the dictionary, to cherish
means "to hold dear;treat with care
and affection, and to keep them deeply
Providing is good, but cherishing is better.
