Today I want to live...
Silly statement right?
But what I mean is - I want to live today to its fullest!
I want to go GAGA over a baby...
Look into the eyes of an older person...
Hugg a helpless person.
Last week, a new friend moved away.
I continue to be surprised on how I am grieving his move.
It was a good move for him, back to his home and family, but a loss to this community.
Yes we will stay in touch as much as anyone does -
but I will miss him.
I don't have regrets about our friendship, we got together often - even though both of us agreed we should meet more.
We accomplished a few things for our community
Life goes on, I know - and really I am happy for him.
My lesson for me today is:
Get out of each day all you can get.
Give as much as you can.
Embrace challenges boldly
and enjoy the sunsets.
Tomorrow everything may change...
