Being of a certain age, I notice the passing of friends and family. This life I once believed was indestructible, I now realize is fleeting. We have this present moment and that is all we have. Do you take time to appreciate the cool breeze of the day? Do you appreciate the many blessings given to you? Take time and reflect, meditating on all that has been given to you by God.
