A Precious Tribute

Days pass us by in a flash. We watch and wait and wonder. We hope and plan and dream. In an instant, it can be shattered. All the wondering and dreaming comes to a screeching halt in an instant. Watch out for the interruptions.

I sit here silently listening to the voices in my head, what if? Why now? When will it stop, or start? I think of all the things I still want to accomplish in my life. It seems a long one, yet now it is as if I am running out of time and will never complete… well, anything. Can life be this fleeting?

I say these things because I’m reminded today how precious life can be. I say these things as I remind myself that we should not take each other for granted. For tomorrow can bring a cold reality. I am thankful that this will not be the case today or hopefully tomorrow, at least under these circumstances.

We don’t know what tomorrow will bring. I will pray that tomorrow will be a better day and the light will shine brightly on the “subject” of my short dissertation.

We have many loves in our lives. We have our parents, our siblings, our children, our spouses, and our friends and extended family. Each love holds a special place in our hearts. Today I remember each love and am reminded of the special place they hold in my heart. But today I am intensely reminded that one of these loves suffers in great pain and my heart breaks for her. I pray tonight for the miracle of healing and the grace of God to make it happen. Rest in peace tonight my love and regenerate. Return to us the compassionate, loving, intense soul that keeps us all waiting for the next “moment”. I LOVE YOU!
