Spring….It’s a New Day

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.
