October is a seasonal time of transition. As with the seasons, we all go through transition in our lives. Puberty, college, marriage,babies,empty nest, divorce and death are a few of the most noted forms of transition in life, but there are many others. How we handle times of transition is up to the individual. We can embrace life's changes to become stronger people or we can choose to be victims. The quote above is from Elizabeth Edwards, deceased wife of politician,John Edwards. I had the opportunity to meet Elizabeth only month before she died. I told her how much her book Resilience, had meant to me after losing my own child. We talked about divorce, death,our "new normal" and our children. She mentioned how grateful she was that John had left work, that day to take Emma Claire her book bag, while Elizabeth was away. I couldn't help but be totally amazed by her composure and grace. I asked her to share her secret to remaining positive in trying times. She said for her, the key, was to remain grateful. She said she spent time daily in her a favorite chair reading devotionals and having quiet time. "Spending time reflect is important" she added. How often do you start your day spending time in your favorite spot reflecting, being grateful? Do you have one? If you don't have a cozy corner check back tomorrow. I have a few suggestions you might want to consider.
Until then be grateful, Happy Monday!
