This is a truly heartbreaking story. But it is one that we feel is necessary to hear in order to remind ourselves to appreciate and be grateful for the people in our lives.
This is the story of how Jason Rodas lost his mother a few years ago. Jason had to make the toughest decision of his life, and in that moment learned how loving and giving he can be to others around him.
How often do you tell your mother how much you love her, how grateful you are that she raised you to be a fine member of society? Probably not as often as you should. Like us, you may get caught up in the daily routine and rush of life and forget to say the things that matter most to those you love.
Life is fleeting; it passes by in the blink of an eye. Make sure you tell the people in your life how much you love them before the day comes when they are no longer here.
Rodas makes sure to leave us with some words of wisdom he remembers his mother teaching him: “Live simply so other people can simply live.”
