Today, we remember those who have given selflessly, who bravely share love and kindness at times when it would be easier to walk away or simply keep to themselves. Today, we celebrate the unexpected smile, the hand out reached, the spirit of peace in those who give of themselves for others.
Life travels at such lightening speed. Isn’t it great that we have created the pomp and circumstance that surrounds life’s milestones? Pausing to recognize and honor our successes, accomplishments and momentous occasions may likely be the only way to ensure that we remain present in the beauty and joy of those moments. Celebrations are life’s way of making sure the laser imprint of our magnificence sticks.
What if the darkest times, the largest struggles, and the greatest grief were treated as gold, jewels, and trinkets? A treasure box shoved deep down underneath brings richness, bright and full of promise when opened. Shadows that no longer remain hidden sparkle with hope, prosperity, and joy when realized as buried treasure.
