Call off the Search Party...

I'm here.

One of the reasons I've been away is that I don't know what to write. My life has changed in so many ways. When I try to find words to begin an old place that was once a great comfort, I can't find them...they run and hide. So I say...Ok..tomorrow I'll write.

But I don't.

My eyes are open to a new way of a new awareness of life around me... to the ability to love life as it should be loved and people too.

So if you truly love life and if you truly love those around you, please take moments to appreciate the love. All you can give the people you love is time--a little of yourself. That's a great gift... time. So often we take it for each day as just a day and think of the next.

What if there wasn't a next? What if that life was gone in the next moment?

My wish to all that read here is that you find it in your hearts to love life, to let the petty things go and embrace the world around you. To love, to live, to cry and to fight the sad times with this knowledge that we don't have all the time in the world...that we should fight to live, fight to love and fight to breathe the air.

Don't give up on yourself or those you love. Each of us has a purpose in life, a gift... God's gift of us to this world.

I pray that each of you will find this blog post a comfort or a battle cry or maybe an uplifting moment...

Don't let it get away... like a wisp of heat in the winter. Grab on to every moment that you have and live...

I try to live each day as if it's my last, which is why I never have any clean clothes. I mean, c'mon. Who wants to spend their last day doing laundry?
