Early or Late

Depending on how you want to view this, today’s blog is one day early or two days late. I didn’t blog on the holiday and I will be unavailable to blog next Monday also, so this week I am doing it Wed. instead of Thurs. and who knows when I’ll do it next week. Keep ’em guessing is my current motto. 

Here is my take on life just lately. Adulthood is a leap off a big cliff. You earn your wings on the way down. Wings (also known as wisdom & experience) slow you down, thank goodness. Remember how fast paced you used to go? Here is the trick to your journey: It is a beautiful ride if you keep your eyes open. Don’t be afraid – it does you no good. Don’t worry – that also does no good. Smile. Enjoy. As the sign in my daughter’s house says, “Live, Laugh, Love.” Those three things make for a good flight.

The world is round so we don’t know what’s coming. There is a reason for that. Use it to your advantage. Enjoy every moment of your journey. Try to not take any of your days or even moments with your family for granted. They are here to comfort you, support you, guide you, love you, laugh with you, share with you and you with them all the good and the bad – which is what life is, all mixed together. If you are different from each other and found it difficult in the past to get along, teach yourself to cherish those differences. Think of your family like you would a giant field of wild flowers, all the colors and fragrances that make them so unique are what make that field so beautiful. Some bloom early, some bloom late.
