A New Day

Monday, September 13, 2010
After all that's happened over the past few months, for the first time I feel like I can breathe. I don't know why. Maybe it's because DH and I are finally starting to see the bigger picture. There will always be tragedy in our lives, it's part of life, but more importantly it's about finding something good in each day. DH found a short story the other day that I think is the perfect example of how we all should live our lives. If I could remember the name of it or the name of the book, I'd link to it, but I can't remember. The gist of the story is this:

A young man is being chased in the jungle by a lion. He trips and starts to fall over the side of a cliff. While holding on to a branch to keep from falling, he notices another lion at the bottom of the cliff. In that moment, he notices a beautiful, ripe strawberry. He reaches out, picks the strawberry and enjoys it.

Are you enjoying your strawberry today? If not, maybe you should be.
