…how fragile is life….
I saw my long, lost friend on Saturday. She was severely injured in a car accident last fall. She received a brain stint as well as a tracheotomy. She worked hard during physical therapy sessions in order to regain the ability to walk. I was amazed to see her at our school this past Saturday.
She is a living miracle and reminded me in a big way that life truly is NOW. To be totally absorbed in the present moment is the ultimate goal of being. This is hard to achieve in our American culture because we are lead to believe that being busy leads to importance. Just look at the word… Busy… Busi…Business.
Seeing my friend this weekend provided me with an opportunity to respond to this presentation of courage with renewed efforts of thankfulness and appreciation for menial everyday tasks. I hope you are as happy doing the laundry tomorrow as I was in picking up the trash can from the curb today.
