Forever Young

Today is my mother's birthday, she would have been 88 years old. How I would have loved to see her at such a glorious age.

Always so full of life and energy, she was a vibrant and loving woman. In my heart she will always be forever young.

How very blessed am I that the only ills I suffer are that of excess. If my jeans are too tight it is because I have more than enough food to eat. If I am stressed from travel it is because I have more than enough money to pay for it.

The struggle and lack of my childhood have disappeared into a wealth of riches. Now I must show my gratitude by sharing my good fortune.

Teeth Marks

I laughed tonight when I saw the teeth marks on the edge of the table. My grandson is old enough now to pull himself up on the furniture and sink his brand new teeth into the table, leaving his tiny little imprint.

I'm sure Mom and Dad don't think it is so cute - but Grandma thinks it is just adorable! Life is very, very good!!!

Precious Time

Nothing is as transient as time. Everything except for right now is an illusion - the past is gone and tomorrow is not here and yet that is where most of us spend our time.

It is very difficult to stay connected to the present moment, especially with all the outside influences that occupy our minds. I try to be still at least one moment each day just to experience nothing but being here, right now.
