“Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin.” ~ Mother Teresa
The last day of the year stirs reflection. 365 days have passed that make up a year of living, loving, breathing, walking, praying, hoping. Moments, hours, days, weeks, months. Time. Where did it go? Gratitude for living and loving through another year. These thoughts occupy my mind on New Year’s Eves. Looking back helps set a focus for the day and year to come. Then hope steps in filling thoughts for time yet to come. Hope comes easily and it feels reassuring.
I am so grateful for this life and the beauty found in it. Caring people who give of themselves to make a difference in the life of another instill hope in all of us. Parents teaching their children what is right and good. Couples honoring each other in their love. It all comes down to love. I am so very grateful for the power of love.
“It's funny how, in this journey of life, even though we may begin at different times and places, our paths cross with others so that we may share our love, compassion, observations, and hope. This is a design of God that I appreciate and cherish.” ~Steve Maraboli
Peace. Thank you for sharing this journey with me.
