Today is the 3-year anniversary of my first blog posting. Keeping a commitment to this blog — really a form of journaling — is part of my sincere wish to be a person who lives in the moment. Being mindful of what is happening — the big events as well as the tiny ones — on a minute-by-minute basis, brings a lot of joy. When I am truly living that way, I see so much more. What some think of as serendipity I think of as being open to seeing possibility and opportunity.
Today is also the 14th birthday of one of my best friends, Mendelssohn. Click on image for larger view.
His hearing and sight are not as keen as they once were, but he still brings joy and comfort each day. And inspiration! Did I forget inspiration? See for yourself here.
Today I am wishing for the kind of mindful living that will allow me to recognize the grace I receive in my life.
