Life is a gift. Enjoy the present. Everyday, every hour, every minute, every second is an opportunity to make a positive impact. On Friday I went out of town for a workshop. I did everything to prepare for this trip. I left strict instructions for my family regarding mom's care. What a difference a few hours make. I had just checked into the hotel and registered for the workshop and was trying to decide where we would go for a bite to eat before the first class. My cell phone rang. It was my brother shouting frantically. My mom was on the way to the hospital. She had a major setback. Mom is now in intensive care on a ventilator and I had to go home. After many prayers and waiting here I sit. Mom will be having a CT Scan today to see her brain activity. She is in God's hands. I have a made up mind that no outside forces will distract me. I won't let the naysayers, busy bodies, and know it alls invade my space. I asked for the prayer warriors to intercede. Mom has lived her life. She has left her footprint on this earth. I haven't given up or given in. I will live each moment with purpose. Live each day so that tomorrow you won't regret your previous day! Each day is a gift; enjoy your present.
