From John Pavlovitz - Stuff That Needs to be Said. Read his stuff. You will be glad that you did.
I wish I'd written this. Heidi sent it to me as a love reminder. We are often telling each other how we worry about what it would be like without the other. We are getting to that age, you know? When our parents and their friends are slowly leaving the earth, when colleagues and older teachers we have known are getting way up there, when our heros' (Jimmy Carter for example) days are numbered.
I love this reminder to live each day as it comes, as a way to celebrate what is happening right now, right in front of us, to love the ones we are with.
