It’s Still a Privilege!

This post that I am writing today is one that I write with pain and with so much mixed feelings and I hope this message can make you cherish more certain things if you still have them in your life.

There are things in life that we either take for granted, challenges that we may not like to face, things that we wish we weren’t going through, people who will get us on our nerves and on and on the lists goes. It doesn’t matter how hard the challenge may be, how difficult of a time you may be having, how much someone may get you on your nerves…it’s still a privilege.

That loved that you have by your side that may be getting you on your nerves now, it’s still a privilege that you have them in your life. Remember that someday they may not be there. This difficult time that you may be having, it’s still a privilege because there are lessons to be learned from that experience. That pain that you may be feeling at the moment it’s still a privilege because it makes you see how human you are.

Whenever you feel a heaviness, whenever you feel exhausted and tired of whatever situation that you are facing, please know that life is always changing so that moment that you have, no matter how difficult it may be, it is still a privilege that you are going through it. Life is extremely short and every moment is to be enjoyed. Enjoy that loved one even if they get you on your nerves! Always remind those who you love that you love them! No matter how difficult a moment may be, do your best to embrace that moment! Every moment, even the difficult ones, is to be cherished.

Today’s post I want to dedicate to my dad. It’s still a privilege to be able to fight for you, to be able to struggle with you, to be able to have those sleepless nights just to be by your side whenever you are at a new facility, whenever you feel lonely and need some company. It’s still a privilege although it’s a hard task but because you are a fighter, I am a fighter and even though there are times where it feels like it’s too much, I would still continue fighting along side you. For all those moments that we had to fight along side you that we know we won’t get back, we will still treasure those moments and we thank you so much for all that you are giving to us. We love you and will love you always!

To all of you, please remember that no matter what….it’s still a privilege.

  1. “Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.”

  2. Your words always meaningful and true, and it is a privilege to spend moments with those you cherish and love, even those whom you may dislike, life is a growing process, where we become better humans over time. Our blossoming will happen, if we stay on the path of serving others in our lives no matter how tired, lonely, or sad we may become, because what is negative creates what is positive to those who always embrace what life has to offer. It is a privilege to know you, and I pray for your father, and it is a privilege to know him, because in knowing you I receive the love that he passed into your heart, spirit, mind and soul. God bless you always my sister

    • Thank you for your words Wendell! I’m still hurt to think about the most difficult decision we had to make to think about my dad’s comfort. He is weak to tolerate anymore procedures or surgery and no antibiotic is working. I just can’t believe this is happening and a part of me isn’t so accepting of what is going on but it’s the situation that we are living. I just want to make sure he knows that he is a great father and a great husband to my mom and that he is giving us so much. Thank you for your prayers! And it is a privilege to know you! Thank you so much for everything!

  3. I was moved to share a poem this morning, ‘The One I Do Think Of,’ after reading your message. It is a re-blog of one of my favorites. You made my heart smile, so I return the favor to you. Gods love is always with us all…and that is a privilege also!
