I strive to live for today, and to count my blessings, and stay in the moment. As all of us, some days are better than others. It is amazing how quickly I can “busy” myself. Now given the gift of improved physical and mental health, I am doing more. I caution in doing too much…becoming overly fatigued and stretched. I want to keep the awareness of the beauty of every moment. It is a good place to be I think, and I received this gift through a possible death experience. No, I am not out of the fire. My “year” mark will be in February. We will see then if I am still cancer free.
But what I know, is that ALL of us just have today. On Sunday, a young woman (a mom) from our church was out jogging, and was hit and killed by a car. This week, a young man in prison was executed for a crime he swears he did not commit. We all have today. May I keep this knowledge in my very soul, and treasure each minute with my beautiful husband, children, family, pets, nature, and community (however small or large).
I love you guys. Thanks for sharing this journey with me. As I have said before, and still mean it today, your love and support lifts me up and keeps me going.
