The Things I'll Never Learn (Part 5000)

Welcome to this installment of The Things I'll Never Learn--those life lessons that you know pretty much from the start, or from some point in your life, but that you have to keep realizing, because they keep escaping you. In this installment is:

Never take anyone for granted. There are a myriad of reasons for this lesson. This posting in particular is brought on by my Mom's recent time in the hospital (not serious, but still) which reminded me that I often take for granted that people will be there, and that's not really the case...Of course my Mom isn't the only one I've taken for granted, but that's hte example I present here. Never take anyone for granted.

As far as things I'll never learn go, that one's...well, it's definitely on the list.

I'm not sure anyone ever fully lives out that leason even if they truly learn it. It's a tough one. Still, it's an important one to be reminded of and to make efforts to operationalize.
