September 2013

September 10, 2013

With September here and already a third over, I am taking time to meditate on how quickly 2013 has gone by. August is done, I am 54 years old, school is in session, football is here, leaves are starting to fall, a dear friend of mine just passed away, 9/11 is upon us, and I feel like I have so much to do before the year ends. Life goes by so fast as I get older. Days come and go one on top of the other. Weeks fly by. Then months. Then years.

As we look at the lives we were given, and then made for ourselves, let’s appreciate ALL that we have. First of all, at least we were given a life. Beyond that, most of us can look around and despite what problems we have or what challenges have come before us, we can see that our lives have been a heck of a lot better than a lot of people’s. So why waste time and energy complaining or fussing? Why not thank our lucky stars for the blessings which have been bestowed upon us. Then Thank Our Gods and the Universe we had this chance to begin with.

I’ll end here with a note to remember those who were taken from us so tragically on 9/11/2001. Remember also those we have known who have gone before us. May the God of Light and Love bless them and keep them always. May God Bless You and Keep You, too.

And Happy Birthday month to my lovely wife, Liz.

Peace, Love, Hope,

Don Newman
