As the wise saying goes. . .
It isn’t designed to put Life into a negative light, nor to add a sense of morbid urgency. . .but the idea is that Life – truly – is a gift.
The people we love, the blessings we have. . .most of all, our own breath, are gifts.
To recognize the temporal confines of this “go ’round” is to bring our awareness to the beauty, the good, the positive, the happy.
We have no control over how much time we are – or are not – given, nor the time given those we cherish. . .
We can, however, find joy in each present moment. We have the choice.
If you find you cannot. . .endeavor to seek it out – fervently – lest time march past before you discover you had the power all along.
I went downstairs to pick something up the other day, and there was a nest with Autumn flowers waiting for me, with a note from my husband to wish me a happy Thursday. . .
Since the day we met, his thoughtfulness has melted my heart – there is no gesture, large or small, that I do not appreciate fully.
Love those in your life fearlessly, and with all you have. Take any opportunity you can get to say
“I love you,” and…
“I appreciate you.”
Life is precious…and far too fleeting…not to cherish what you have in every moment.
There will not be a day so long as I breathe and live that I will not harbor an immense gratitude for everything he does, and all that he is… And there will never be a day that I stop making sure he knows. Relationships may evolve in time, but love never has to lose its vibrant aura.
