Open, love, and miracles…

I sit in this small room shaken to my very core by what has happened today.
Never in my wildest imaginings did I think I would know love like this
and I certainly didn’t believe in miracles.
Life was so normal this morning but now this afternoon
it is so different, amazingly, unbelievably different.
All because he opened his eyes and looked into mine.
Hello, baby boy, welcome to my heart.

No guarantees in life…

file000205524313

There are only a couple of things about life
we know for sure, we are born and we will die.
In between anything can happen.
We will go to school and then to work…or not.
We will marry…or not.  We will have children…or not.
We will be healthy…or not.  We will be happy…or not.
Most likely we will experience some form
of all of the above.

Some of what happened in the past stays with us.
Sometimes that is good sometimes not.
Some of what happens today will end today
and some will affect the future.

We pretty much just get what we get and what we do with it is up to us.

Our life can be like a towering tree majestic in its beauty
or a messy tangled affair that never gets off the ground.
Life for most of us will be like a towering tree
with a tangle of weeds growing around it.
