I was blessed to have the opportunity to ride in this today...
Life hands things to us whether we're ready or not, and it is vitally important to live our lives accordingly. Yes, preparedness is essential, but isn't spontaneity equally important? Today was such a day. Some dear friends of mine stopped by the office and took me for a little spin in the Slingshot. It was exhilarating, and I loved every moment of it...
That tiny little break during the day today made me realize, once again, how important it is to live our lives to the utmost. Just seeing this precious couple enjoying one another, taking trips together, laughing together...just DOING LIFE...well, that, my dear friends, is what it's all about.
There are things in our lives we take for granted...the Monday morning grind, the starting of our vehicles when we turn the ignition, our spouses head on the pillow...and on any given day, these things can be gone, and we don't realize how much we take those things for granted until they're no longer there. But, today is a day that begs to be lived! It calls, beckoning us on some deep level to get out there and be what God has called us to be! Relish those moments. And when the day of sorrow comes (and it will surely come if we live here on this earth), then we will at least have the comfort that we loved enough, that we listened enough, that we supported enough, that we laughed enough, that we cried enough, and that we just, doggone it, LIVED enough!
