Umm, what can I say? Life has been different. My life has changed. It has not stopped. It is just different. I have learned that through grief life does not stop, it just changes. I have changed the way I go about my daily routine. I have changed the way I look at my children. I have changed the way I look at my future. I have changed the way I look at life.
If you have not already figured this out life is so short. It is like a mist. We are here and then we are not. We are here to enjoy the earthly blessings that God gives us, but we are also here to fulfill God’s plan.
As I stared at my brand new niece this weekend I saw life differently. I have to think that God knew the timing of her birth would be perfect for my brother and sister in-law and also ME. Yes, ME! I now see life as such a blessing. We are brought here to bring joy to our parents when we are born and also everyone around us. Life is a short journey that we should enjoy and keep the little moments in life close in our hearts and the big moments even closer. The miracle of life is a mystery, but so is the journey. We DO NOT KNOW what is next. If we could we would not enjoy these precious moments like the birth of a baby. We would cringe in the facts we knew and be anxious about the life to come.
I believe now I see that life is something we have to enjoy. Every minute, every breath, every “I love you”, every “momma, I spilled the milk”. We just do not know how fast life can change.
I have a new found appreciation for life. My life will be wonderful. It wont be perfect, but I will enjoy all of it.
A new outlook is not changing your past or how you feel, it is just changing how you see the future. So with all of this mumbo jumbo, I am stressing love life, love your kids, love every little moment that comes along.
Laugh, Love, Have HOPE
