I have this plaque in my house and when I looked at it this morning, I recalled the time I had purchased two of these and gave one to my very dear friend Jodi. Last year my friend transitioned into a new life where she is now an angel in heaven.
“I have seen and met angels wearing the disguise of ordinary people living ordinary lives.” This quote by Tracy Chapman describes Jodi perfectly. I became emotional as I thought about the words on this plaque… Cherish Life. The love she shared was straight from her heart right into yours. She did cherish life and she found joy in all things.
To cherish is to hold “something” dear. What do you hold dear to you? I encourage you to focus on what brings joy into your world and take a moment to lift up a prayer of thanksgiving for it.
Robert Brault said: “Enjoy the little things in life, for one day you’ll look back and realize they were big things.”
May you live your life in the here and now, being in the present moment, holding dear to your heart all the beautiful gifts, blessings that are in your life.
With much love,
