Sometimes life will throw you a curve and every plan you have goes out the window. We planned to rest and relax the month of January, but that quickly came to a halt when a family emergency changed our plans. This is how life works, things change and you must be willing to roll with the changes.
The question you ask yourself is how? The answer for us came from our Aunt Carolyn, “Be Alert” she said. Although uncertain what these words meant they became comfort during a stressful time. “Being Alert” forces you to slow down and enjoy simple moments that would normally just slip away. It causes you to think about how precious life is, the good days and the bad days. Alertness makes seeing brighter, smelling stronger and tasting sweeter. It makes you say, thank you God I am alive and I have a chance to make this right, different, fresh or new.
So today, “Be Alert” and expect a miracle, we got one.
