For every single moment of our lives, let us be grateful and celebrate the gift. Let us know be prisoners of the past or the future, for we have absolutely no way to change the past nor to know what is to come in the future. All we have is the present moment. It is a gift that often goes un-noticed until it too becomes part of the past, and then sometimes we realize that we let the moment slip.
Life becomes so deeply meaningful when we give the present its due recognition. And no matter if the moment if joyful or otherwise, being mindful of what is happening as it happens is part of celebrating life …. a moment at a time. And this gives us strength and courage to allow whatever comes our way, because we would have known that we have fully lived, loved and been grateful until that very point.
