It’s a new day and it is ours…….that was the first line on my wedding invitation 18 years ago. Funny how we have a few important dates in our life and we await them with great anticipation or dread, live them in a blur and then look back on them for rest of our lives. Graduation, marriage, children, death of a loved one. These days tempt us to live in the past or the future. What is different about today than yesterday regarding my marriage? Not a single thing. The calendar requests that I treat it differently and I certainly oblige. Talk a little sweeter, do something special, remember the moment that we became a family unit. But doesn’t every day deserve this treatment? Everyday of marriage is choice, is it not? I offer that if we put effort into the moment instead of the once a year, the result would be astounding. The gist of looking at a calendar is to see the square box of right now but it’s really about being able to reflect the past and gaze into future. As far as my relationships go, I long to make a calendar obsolete. I long to live in the moment. Every moment is a celebration, every day is a new one, every day is spring…and it is ours. Now, go make the most of it.
