We have to live for this moment.

Bad hair.

Pudgy tummy.

Not-there-yet on whatever task or goal.

It’s this moment, not some moment up ahead.

You can aspire, reach and pursue whatever the heck you want, but as you do it you have to realize that this moment is incredible. And a gift.

I’ve met Susan twice in person, but I have read her words, imagined her family and rallied around her more times than I can count. I could go on and on about her, but what I really want is for you to go over to her blog and leave a word.





Get well.

Thinking of you.

It needn’t be a masterpiece, what you need to know is that you leaving a trace of yourself, of support in whatever formation of letters it may be, will have an impact.

If you don’t have an account in place for commenting, do it anonymously. Or, simply move forward from this moment on grateful for each minute you have. Think of a mom and the people who love her battling for moments. Drop every petty bit of weight that keeps you from fully occupying the beauty of each frame you have here on earth.

See your kids in a new way.

See your spouse in a new light.

Accept the embrace of family.
