Minute by Minute


I had an eye opening first few hours of my day today.
It really has me thinking about life.
The big picture.
The little things.
What matters.

I woke all my children and one by one helped them get ready for school,
hugged them goodbye, told them I loved them and wished them a happy day.

I stood at the patio door and watched the world through a rain streaked window.
The cold, dreary morning was not bringing me down, rather, I enjoyed watching the raindrops race to the bottom and felt happy to have a warm, safe house from which to watch the cold, dank weather.

I sat at my computer to check on my fellow bloggers.
Tears swelled and ran down my face just as the rain runs down my window.
I found out one of my fellow bloggers was just diagnosed with stage four ovarian cancer.
Such a talented, vibrant, wonderful woman.
She needs prayers. I am sending them in mass.

It was so inspiring and touching and important that I plan on using it as a morning meditation.
It is touching, inspiring and beautiful.

Two little hours were filled with so very much.


Make every moment count.
