We expect to celebrate the big milestones….the birthdays, the anniversaries, the major holidays.
I would suggest however, that every day we wake to the sun’s light is a celebration.
Each moment in which we are truly present is a celebration of our awareness, as in this moment my brother shared with his first grandchild at my home last week. They were simply birdwatching, nothing monumental and not a moment that Crosby will remember, but one my brother Jim will certainly cherish. After three heartbreaking miscarriages little Crosby was certainly a great cause for celebration in this family!
With all that in mind, this has been a week of celebrating the simple moments with my granddaughter, who is visiting from Houston. Next week one of her big brothers will be here, but for now we’re all about celebrating little Maddie, and the moments we’re spending with her.
Next week it’s Xander’s turn, then Judah will follow.
Here’s wishing you a day in which you find something to celebrate. Perhaps it’s that first moment of the awareness of the new day. Perhaps it’s a cool breeze as it touches your face or the discovery of a dragonfly as it lands on a flower.
Celebrations don’t have to be monumental to count.
