“If every day is an awakening, you will never grow old. You will just keep growing.” ~ Gail Sheehy
The photo today is my sweet little Lizzie. She and her sister Beth bring great joy into our lives. But as we watch them grow and learn to be cats, we are also learning important life lessons.
Every day for these girls is an opportunity for a brand-new adventure as they explore and discover the world around them. Looking out the window is a new experience every day as they watch squirrels, birds, the neighbors and listen to traffic, people and dogs. Walking or running through the house they are always sniffing out new things to explore, new heights to climb to. If I can’t find Lizzie I am learning to look up.
As I watch them grow, I can’t help but wonder when I lost the excitement that is felt when everything is new. If we stay open to spirit we can see every day as a brand-new opportunity to learn and grow.
May every day be an awakening. May we never grow old. May we just keep growing.
