Awhile back, my friend, SomeGirl, posted about the purpose of her blog. She has a very clear vision and purpose, and it fits wonderfully with her blog. (That's the point of having a purpose statement, right?) She made me think about this blog of mine, (she's always making me think, and I love her for it...) and the only thing I could think of in my purpose for it is that it's for me
Until this weekend, that is. Several things all happened that helped me realize what I really want this blog to focus on. (And I started to write out all the details, but it was just going to be waaaayyyy to long for you to read, assuming anyone is reading, right? So, I'll just skip to the point. If you really care to know the details, I'll be happy to share them, just ask.)
I want this to be about EMBRACING LIFE. Cherishing each and every moment, no matter how big or small, awesome or awful. Yes, even THIS moment, when my kids are screaming at each other, and making an awful mess, and getting-on-my-very-last-nerve. THAT moment is as important as all the good ones. Because it's the not-so-great moments that show us the true beauty and miracles of the great moments.
Life can end, or change radically, in an instant...
for me, for you, or for someone we love.
Life is a gift.
Don't waste it.
