What are you waiting for?

I came across a beautiful quote this morning.  I don’t know where I found it or if somebody gave it to me but I had it tucked away inside my make up bag.

It reads:  ” The tragedy of life is not that it ends so soon, but that we wait so long to begin it.” W.M. Lewis.

During the month of December many of us contemplate as we see one year is ending and a new year beginning.  As Courtney and I light our candles each night of Hanukkah we think of all the blessings we have received this year.

I don’t want to have any regrets of waiting to begin something.  I want to rejoice in a life well lived and enjoyed.  I have been studying Judaism with Rabbi Sally at Temple Isaiah for nearly a full year now and as I look back I am grateful I have taken this step in my life to learn more of this beautiful religion.

This month as I contemplate this past year I am thankful for all that has been given to me.  I don’t ever want to have regrets about not doing something or saying something kind to another human soul.  I want to be mindful of all the opportunities that cross my path.
