How blessed are we to live out the miracle of life in each new moment? That is all we really have is the present moment as none of us are promised the next. We have lost a lot of famous people this year and a lot of loved ones too. We never know what we have until that person becomes a memory or even more than that, we knew what we had but never thought we'd lose it.
We have the opportunity to be alive and present in each moment because that is where miracles happen. Yes!! Right there in that moment when you hear your grandchild laughing or open that door for a stranger or the warm breeze on your face that connects you with all there is. We never know how we may impact another's life but it is the smallest stone that can create the biggest ripple.
To have the opportunity to act in love and kindness and cherish what we have is a beautiful thing. I thank God everyday for the many blessings I have and all the challenging situations that I have found myself in. I have grown so much and learned that what we perceive as "bad" are opportunities to move closer to our true nature, which is love. Love is not only who we are but it is what we are. So may you all have a Happy New Year and an even happier new moment. Blessings.
