Valuing Life

Check out Today’s Touchstone by Charlene Costanzo

“‘How much longer will I live?’… Only one thing seems clear to me. Every day should be well-lived. What a simple truth! Still, it is worthy of my attention.” ~ Henri Nouwen

A neighbor and friend died suddenly yesterday morning. Along with feeling sympathy for his wife and family, I feel the loss to our community. And I am reminded that, without becoming fearful, it is wise to remember that we are not here forever. Nor are our loved ones. So let’s live and love and be grateful for each day.  Let’s celebrate often and be kind.  

With compassion and hope,
Charlene
