Choosing Life

I hope everyone is having a good week. Tomorrow is Mother's Day and I wish all of the mothers, grandmothers, and Godmothers out in cyberspace a blessed and joyful Mother's Day.

I have been thinking a lot lately about life. So much of our life is challenging, difficult, and often downright hard!

A lot of people go through life just "existing" or "just getting by." They float through the stages of life without paying much attention to the people, events, and world around them. Have you met people like this? I have. It's sad really.

There are other people that choose to live a full life, who suck the marrow and juice out of every moment, who savor each day like it's their last. There are people who want to enjoy the people they meet and the events that they attend whether it is a movie, a play, or a trip. They want to explore and learn and grow.

Of course there are tough moments in life when we all feel like we're just "getting by" as we say. However, do we choose to really and fully live? Do we choose to enjoy all of God's creation?

I hope that this week you can choose life and to live it fully and abundantly.
