"Change will come as surely as the seasons and twice as quick."
When I first heard those words (on none other than the classic movie, "Little Women"...love that story) I was a little girl. Years later as an adult, I understand them more fully and I appreciate their truth all the more. The past few days, surrounded by family, I realized this truth afresh. Change happens inevitably, and we cannot hold time in our hands... it slips through our fingers just as quickly as sand through an hourglass. And as we age and grow, that realization can be scary. But I am learning, more and more, to embrace and savor and enjoy every moment instead of mourning their passing and fearing their loss. To cherish the little things, the small moments - for they add up and become the years that pass, the years and ages we kiss goodbye. Those sweet moments that soon become memories.
My birthday Thanksgiving was special. All day, a song I hadn't thought of for years was stuck in my head, replaying. Written by one of my old family friends & mentors, the song lyrics are all about God's love, and I would like to share them with you, my dear reader.
While my little sister Mandy spent the morning hanging out with Dick Van Dyke (her hubby is a sound engineer in Hollywood and Dick Van Dyke ran an event he worked.) Being a huge throw-back, 1950's/60's TV show fan, I was totes jealous.
Love to you this week, as you set up your trees and whip out your twinkle lights. Oh, and if you need some cheery Christmas music to liven up the decorating, check out my friend Bri's favorite blogger's Christmas Playlist 2012 - I'm honored to be included, and excited to find some fabulous new songs.
