Firstly an apology, I thought I had changed my settings to allow anyone to post comments to the blog. Unfortunately, I hadn’t. I have since rectified the error (I hope) and anyone can now comment on the site. I value your feedback and input, so please write something.
Secondly, I thought, why waste a post. I want to expand a bit on the idea of celebrating each other. My mother is currently recovering from a life-threatening illness. I want you to know, priorities change what life is on the line. Suddenly you become aware of what is important and what is not. More than ever, I am aware that time is transient, and that which we have now we will not have in the future. I value the times I now have with my mother and aim to create lasting memories that will not only build me up, but serve as a testimony to future generations. Often it takes a shock to bring home a truth that someone has been telling you all along, My one pastor, Pastor Bonnie Deuschle, has been showing our church how to create memories for years; it’s only now that I’ve really understood. Mom-I still owe you that ice-cream.
I wish to live a life of no regrets. It’s one thing to regret doing something; it’s completely another to have had the opportunity to do something and not done it. It’s the second lament that I wish to avoid. I desire a full and complete life. That’s why I have a life “wish-list”. That’s why I started this blog. To identify and be prepared for opportunities that come along is a driving focus in my life. I hope it becomes one in yours.
