That’s the real problem, isn’t it? In every aspect of our lives. There’s plenty of time! Tomorrow. I’ll get to that real soon.
One of these days. Next week maybe. Missed sunsets…lost precious moments.
This last week I’ve had occasion to note how tenuous and fragile our strand of life is and how unbidden calamities and unwelcome surprises can cut it short in a second.
Several good friends are going through very significant health issues…others are on rocky, perilous paths. There are a few heartbreaks, some betrayals, and a friend blind-sided by a lay-off after 37 years on the job.
A few got stuck with their “to do” lists still in their hands when the curtain dropped. We lost a fabulous local musician Stefan George this week plus thousands of people around the planet caught in the cross-fire of war & famine & misfortune.
All had lives and families and PLANS! All were precious and loved by someone!
I’ve taken all this to heart in my on-going “learn as you go” philosophy of life.
Then, WHOMP! I realized…
I’m sooooo danged lucky! I have you…crazy beautiful Babes that you are!
I have The Creative Cottage. I have the Girlz With HeART. I have my wonderful Sweetheart and my own little patch of hardscrabble desert.
Yikes! My life is bountiful! I am a part of the Great Wheel, a feather in the raven’s tail!
So, in honor of all those who have lost their precious, fragile strand of life this week…and for all those who are going through muddles & messes of their own…try to remember…
and let’s remind each other…
And MOST IMPORTANT: Let’s not take ourselves too danged seriously!
Life is but a dream…slow down, play more, love those dearest to you with all your heart!
