November 10, 2007 – November 11, 2007 Looking deeply at life
as it is
in the very here and now
Thich Nhat Hanh
I changed my quote from last year because I am living these words from Thich Nhat Hanh. In the past few days I have been taught an invaluable lesson about living in the here and now. Since Saturday three men I have known have passed away. One was 25, one was 39, and one was 62. All wonderful beautiful, kind , giving, and loving men. Two men left behind a wife and children and one left behind family and friends. Two of these men I had been associated with because of mutual friends. The third man was my brother- in- law. Pat's (my husbands) sister's husband. All three deaths were sudden. One man last control of his car at 7p.m on Sunday evening. The second man was hit by a truck while jogging. The third man died from complications with/from Leukemia. As I sit here I have lit three candles and I am sending prayers to the loved ones each of these men have left behind.
For me ever clique I have heard about life now resonates with me…. live in the moment, live for today, carpe diem, and
