At this time of year, there is always this sense of great anticipation. A longing.
An opportunity to gain some sense of closure.
Just as we endeavor to press ahead into the great unknown.
All while staying fully engaged in the moment.
My sense is that this little one, and others like her, appreciate the gravity of this opportunity more so than most.
Circling the date.
Enduring the tests.
Awaiting the results.
Desperately seeking to put it all behind.
Mustering the courage to smile while relentlessly pressing ahead.
Steadfastly leading the way.
And remaining fully present for those all around them.
Like Emma Rose.
One uncommon flower.
So as you strive to put ‘16 in the rearview and begin to apply the finishing touches to your plans for the great unknown that is ’17, I urge you to pause and reflect.
It is easy to get too far ahead of yourself.
So take heed and don’t let things get away from you.
Set aside just a few of those precious minutes.
And choose to spend them like Emma.
Come to the aid of another.
With a thought.
A whispered prayer.
Just be present.
For that helps the most.
When facing the great unknown.
Please follow their journey
