Call Your Mother
How many more times will you see your parents before they die?
Using recent World Health Organization statistics, you can now get a fair estimate from seeyourfolks.com - which is actually kind of sad and shocking.
The site's creators, however, crafted it with hopeful intent: "We believe that increasing awareness of death can help us to make the most of our lives. The right kind of reminders can help us to focus on what matters, and perhaps make us better people."
It certainly puts the value of relationships into perspective - stark numerical predictions have a way of doing that. Though perhaps, for the follower of Jesus, it resonates in a fresh and even comforting way, in light of eternity.
Go after your relationships with hope today - and call your mother.
