It’s early Saturday Morning and I’m preparing to attend the Sisters Network N.E. FL. Gift for Life Block walk , just as I have done for many years now. And as usual I’m running late and in a little bit of a hurry feeling flustered, and truth be told wondering why I’m even going! But, a still small voice speaks to me and says slow down, “Be still and see His salvation” and it hits me hard, and right on time. I finally see and feel what is really around me, the clear blue sky, and no dark clouds in sight. I notice the tops of green trees gently swaying in the breeze, the birds are celebrating life with their sweet music and suddenly a big smile is on my face and I say, “Thank you for another beautiful day!! I am amazed at how awesome and wondrous the majesty of nature and man is, so I make a purposeful decision to enjoy myself and be happy to be a part of something so positive.
People didn’t think it robbery to take the time to come out and support us as we attempted to make a difference in our community. About one hundred people attended the race from all backgrounds, social status etc. however, we were all joined by a common bond; we were survivors, caregivers, friends, family, young and old. We laughed, talked, cried and celebrated life and love. It was a great day to be alive and we should feel glad about it every day!!
When life’s issues have you running around in circles, take a moment to see the beauty of nature and thank the creator, I promise your day will be better for it.
