Today I am trying to figure out what to wear. It doesn’t matter if it is pretty, or stylish, or goes with my new killer heels. Today it only matters if it is black.
This afternoon I am going to a funeral. A daughter, a sister, an aunt, a friend, a wife, a Mommy to two little boys. Will they remember her? The light in her eyes, the lilt in her laugh. The way she fought.
Cancer never killed her spirit.
Remember when 38 sounded old….
Go now. Get off your computers. Go hug your children and call your sister. Forgive old hurts, let go of the stress and be thankful for every annoyance, every tear, every tiny smile.
Try today to enjoy a moment….and be thankful that you will have many more.
St. Theresa’s Prayer
May today there be peace within.
May you trust that you are exactly
where you are meant to be.
May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are
born of faith in yourself and others.
May you use the gifts that you have received,
and pass on the love that has been given to you.
May you be content with yourself
just the way you are.
Let this knowledge settle into your bones,
and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love.
It is there for each and every one of us.
