A Moment in Time
11/25/2005 4:52:32 AM    [ Flag as Inappropriate ]

As I write this blog the sun is shining brightly through a window in my family room. It is a relief to see its presence especially this time of year after a difficult hurricane season. Yesterday was Thanksgiving and my wife and I traveled south to Massachusetts where we had an enjoyable dinner with my brother and his family. It was a dreary day with heavy rain, snow, and whatever comes between but we made it there and back safely and for that I am thankful. Seeing the sun today reminds me of new beginnings. I feel the warmth of the yellow light on my skin and somehow know that all is well in my small corner of the world. It is in the aftermath of such stormy weather that you feel refreshed as you breathe in the clean air scrubbed by the cleansing rain. In a way it’s a new world now with all the dirty snow of yesterday either washed away or melted from the aftermath of the first storm of the season. Where did the snow go? Was there a storm or is it in my imagination since I cannot see any evidence of its existence? Whatever was in place yesterday is gone today and I can only think of what I saw but thinking is all I can do. I can not re-create even a moment of yesterday or the yesterday’s before. I can only look at where I am today for the evidence of today lies all around me. Where did all those yesterdays go? In a way all the yesterdays of my life and yours are gone into the vapor of time. They existed for a moment but gave up their grip on each of our lives as the clocks ticked and the world moved on into the tomorrow’s we imagined. In that same thought pattern all those yesterdays never happened since we have no evidence of their existence. If so, why do we spend so much time re-living each moment, each mistake, and each trivial misstep we made and never quite get into the today at hand? You see, today is all we have. Yesterday is gone, tomorrow has not happened, but today is here present in all the glory of the sunshine waiting for me to use each moment to benefit not only myself but all who are around me. For me, I made a decision years ago to live in the moment and to make that moment the best moment I possibly can. Sometimes I slip and fall and sometimes I don’t quite live up to the mark I dream of but I do the best I can each moment so that when today is gone I can continue to move forward in my spiritual and personal growth. It is strange that I think these thoughts the day after Thanksgiving. On Thanksgiving Day we were thankful for everything. We professed such wondrous thoughts as loving each other, being thankful for the blessings that come our way, and hug and hug and hug each person of importance in our lives. But, Thanksgiving is gone, today is here, this moment is the moment where we can still hug, love, and spread the words of peace. You see, each moment is the only moment that exists and each moment can and should be filled with all those wondrous feelings of thankfulness. Thank you for reading my blog and for being a part of my present moment. How is your moment going?
