Square Peg ● Round Hole







As I woke up this morning, I was struck by the irony of life.  Two years ago today, we lost my “bonus” dad.  The sadness was overwhelming and I dread the approach of January 16…..until today.  Today marks a new beginning for a beautiful, young couple.   Weddings bring a whole new set of feelings and I woke up this morning with happiness filling my heart.

Life is a composite of moments.    Moments that shape our moods, live in our minds and hearts, but mostly provide us with memories that become our companion, long after the moment has passed.   As I write my blog this morning, I am struck by how quickly life travels.  The young lady getting married this morning is someone I have watched evolve and blossom into an astounding human being.   She has taught Bryce how to be a compassionate sibling to Bailey simply by example.    What an honor to be asked to share in her day.

And isn’t that what life is all about anyway?   Sharing in each others triumphs, defeats, and even mediocre times, is part of the journey.     It is not lost on me that we are not guaranteed a tomorrow even though my calendar would disagree with that.    For me, sometimes, life moves slower if I take a chance to enjoy it.    Live it.   Relish it. Swim in it.   Moments are fleeting, but at the end of the day, all we really have is the memory to keep us company……….make them worthy of being remembered.
