Many things happened to her that happen to everyday ordinary people such as marriage, childbirth, and death. So when she presents the theme of not taking life for granted, people can relate to it as if it happened to them. When Emily was looking back in time after she was dead, she wanted to go back and relive the happiest day of her life, but Mrs. Gibbs stopped her and told her to visit a normal day instead. Mrs. Gibbs knew what would happen to Emily if she had relived a joyful day in her life. If Emily had went back to a special occasion, she would've been overwhelmed by the all the beauty that she didn't pay attention to. When she looked back on her twelve birthday Emily couldn't understand why her own mother wouldn't even spare the time to look at her on her birthday.
