Anna Graves Baron â€Ž…am heartbroken to hear that Ernie Santos and his wife died this weekend. Ernie just left a message on Friday on my wall about the hot air balloon pics. He said “My little one lost it when she saw these this morning. She wanted to chase them…we both almost played hooky and did.” …oh Ernie, I wish you would have played hooky and had that last day with her. *tear*
As I read these words on a friend’s Facebook wall, it felt as if someone had kicked me in the gut. How many times do I have to learn this lesson before I get it into my thick skull that life is so precious? That it is not about someday?
It is about right now, today, this moment.
It is so easy for me to get hung up on waiting for the rainbow after the storms that I completely forget to LIVE during the storms. No one promised us rainbows. Our only promise is where we are right now in this moment.
I am so very blessed, but somehow I forgot to see that for a bit.
It’s time for me to return to my commitment of a new journey.
And it is time for me to read the Way of the Peaceful Warrior and The Four Agreements again, but above all to start LIVING what I learn.
A New Journey Day Fourteen
