I went to a thanksgiving service last week. It was a heartfelt celebration of a friend’s life, appropriately filled with music (for he was a musician). Mike died of MND and wrote a blog in the last months of his life.
Reading his blog I am struck by how much he lived life – with all its joys and its challenges – and this is an image and theme from one of his blogs. You can read the full blog ‘What’s the use of worrying?’ here.
Each of us will have very different joys and challenges today. And yet as we make a choice to live today – to notice what is – we (like Mike did) will find there is sunshine in the midst.
You will only live this day once – so don’t miss it!
This is Mindful Monday on 18 March 2019.
