Just as I am learning to appreciate the role choice plays in my life, I can also appreciate the choices of others, and how their choices make a positive difference in my world. Every day that a friend is still a friend, I am blessed by their choice to share part of their journey with me. Even those we appear to be well rooted in life with- children, parents and spouses- can choose at any time to be elsewhere and without our company. Today when I see my beloved, I will thank him for choosing to share another day with me, recognizing that it is a choice. When I next speak to my child, I will thank him for choosing to share some of his life with me, recognizing that is a choice. When I again meet up with a friend, I will thank him for choosing to let me walk a while with him in life, recognizing that it is a choice.
Today I will pause to reflect on the many who have chosen to share some time on this planet with me. I will feel true and deep gratitude for their choosing to do so. If possible I will express my appreciation.
