The Last Carry

Take a moment to realize that when you were a child your parents regularly carried you in their arms.  It was a part of your life so common as to be unnoticed.

They picked you up and carried you into the house, they held you while you slept, and they laid you down in your bed.

Now realize that on one particular day, that neither you nor your parent recognized, your parent picked you up and carried you for the very last time.  You probably do not remember the day when you last leaned your head into your parent’s shoulder as they held you but thinking on it today, you might wish that you did.

If you have a child of your own remember that your last time to carry them is coming and appreciate holding your child today.

There is a last time for everything so use what little time you have.
