Is life passing you by?

Watch how fast the grains of sand flow. Those are the minutes of your life. Live them. Pave with them. Everyday it's your call.

An excerpt from "Simple Abundance"
-Sarah Ban Breathnach

I've had another Epiphany and I'm learning how to "not" empty my in-box, work until I'm exhausted, reschedule dates with friends and most importantly, telling my loved ones, "when I get the chance..."

That chance is "now."

I'm learning to let "it" go....

I've heard some individuals reinvent themselves.

Well, I've also been given these thoughts: One never notices what has been doneeee; one can only see what remains to be done.

Cont... Free will is not the liberty to do whatever one likes, but the POWER of doing whatever one sees OUGHT to be done, even in the face of otherwise over-whelming impulse.

Hi Miss Butterfly. It appears you are on a journey (we all are). My gift to you "today"....

Do what you can,with what you have, where you are. but remember, your thooughts should be elevated above the ceiling.

I do not know if you recieved (understood)any of those message. But from my end, the gift is in giving.

Have a nice weekend, whats left of it.

Hello Free Spirit Butterfly:
It has been awhile. I thank you for your prayers for our sweet Amy. She is now a free spirit and has her wings to go wherever she wants and needs to. Through this process I have learned to live each day as if it were you last, and to take nothing for granted. Not even a bit of food, or drop of water. God Bless you sweet lady. Country hugs, Sherry
