Perspective -

I'm cooking today, recipes from the past to entertain old friends, when my neighbor knocks on the door.  Her husband's father, who lives an hour north of Boise, had a stroke and was air-lifed to a hospital in Boise; surgery has been performed, and all is currently unknown.  This is a healthy guy, retired, active, still skiis, builds his own planes, just passed his physical to be able to fly, and ...

My intention has been awareness and appreciation this holiday season, and this still gave me a jolt.  Can I be a little more mindful, a little more aware, with each plate I lift, each spoon, each step, and can I nourish and nurture contact, contact, contact with those I care for and love?  May this be so, and may my neighbor's father be A-Okay!  May this be a wake-up call for us all.
