We get busy. We race to meet deadlines. We worry about money or jobs or what someone said, or didn’t say or should have said.
We think about what we have to do, where we have to go, and what’s going on the next minute or the next hour, or the next day, month and year.
We run out of time — no time to see friends, no time to visit family, no time to open a book or hang at the beach. No time to sit and stare into space or lie on the grass and watch clouds go by.
We move aimlessly through time — never fast enough to stop it, or slow enough to enjoy it.
But every so often, something happens that jolts us into the present — and that is where I am today. And you know what is really important — my friends, my family, my cat… So, if you are reading this, and I haven’t seen you lately, I just want to say that I am grateful to have wonderful people in my life.
I want to acknowledge each and everyone of you and thank you.
