By John Yurgens
Taking time to appreciate life and living
I know, you do.
At least you think you do.
I always thought I did
until I realized how close I came to death.
Now, I truly appreciate the little things in life
They were always there
I was, We are so caught up in our lives
We didn’t see them or acknowledge them.
I live my life intentionally, seeking the beauty
In every moment of every day
Little things like:
A child’s laughter, while playing in the fresh snow
A warm smile from a friend
Watching a sunrise or sunset
Made better sharing with someone special
Offering hope and inspiration.
The love of Friends and family
A space to claim
As a new office
A Walk in warm rain
The early spring sun warming the face
Sharing time with good friends that make you laugh and feel loved
Sharing Written words
With friends and the world
All of these and many more I’m sure
Are life sustaining
