Being alive is not only the opposite of being dead.
Being alive is also ALERT and ACTIVE
In the last year, my life has being painfully touched with the cycle of life and death.
I have tasted the acidity of death.
I have reflected on the sweet life lived by my precious mom.
As I think about 2014, which started five days after my mom’s death, I am acutely aware that my year could have been different without the prayer of my “people”, the presence of some very wise souls and my brood of boys that surround me.
I would not have survived without these “Saints”!
(Yup, that’s me on the right after our workout!)
With my whole heart, mind and soul, I want to shout:
I am ALIVE.
I am ALERT.
God is ACTIVE all around me.
Working things out for His good.
Helping me see His ways.
Allowing me the privilege to taste life anew.
Savouring each workout with incredible women in His creation.
Doing things for the first time, things I thought I would NEVER do.
Enjoying every moment with people I love and adore.
I am grateful to be ALIVE.
