HUG Corner: Thought for the Week - 6/4

Healing After Loss (Martha Whitmore Hickman)

We must be ready to allow ourselves to be interrupted by God.

- Dietrich Bonhoeffer

 

Who is ready? We have our plans, things we're looking forward to - life going on at its sometimes unpleasant but nonetheless predictable pace.

Then something happens - like an accident, or a death, or an illness - that changes everything, forces us to reappraise our priorities and, often, reset our lives.

People who have come close to disaster and been able to wheel free have shown a renewed appreciation for the simple pleasures of life, for the gift of each day, and a resolve not to put off pleasures or acts of kindness until "another day," because "another day" may not come.

We who have lost loved ones have also learned the value of simple gifts, of not putting off kind words or actions, because we never know when events will change our world, the expected developments of our lives, and the intended recipients of our kinds words and actions may be gone.

The preciousness of this day is its own gift.
