On living...

With lkmadigan's sad news yesterday, on top of the sadness from last weekend, I'm reminded that everything can change in an instant. We go along our days, falling into a familiar rhythm, and it's easy to forget that change is also a constant in life.

Some changes are harder than others, of course -- it's hard to say good-bye to those we love (whether we've met in person or not). It's hard to see people suffer and grieve. And it reminds me again on this Thankful Thursday, that I want to learn to live each moment as a celebration of life (or at least an acceptance, when dealing with those moments which are too hard for me to celebrate). I don't know when this journey will end and the next adventure will begin. As with so many other aspects of life, I can only control my responses (and sometimes not even those, I suppose), my reactions, my own living.

So for today, I'm going to live...whether moments which come along are the accepting kind or the celebrating kind, today I want to be fully involved in my journey.

Many blessings to you, my friends -- peace for the 'accepting' moments and joy for the celebratory. May grace follow your journey today.
