Today’s Touchstone – Welcoming Every Moment

(Author of The Twelve Gifts from the Garden) Charlene Costanzo believes we should all live in the moment present life.

Whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it. Always work with it, not against it… This will miraculously transform your whole life.” – Eckhart Tolle Today is the first day of the rest of our lives. Let’s make it the first day of our becoming adept at working with what is.

May the whole of our lives be transformed as we grow into greater loving of all that life holds.

With hope,



Through each passage and season,

may you trust the goodness of life.
