As part of my winter reading, I’m back to Simple Abundance by Sarah Ban Breathnach. Maybe because the book is laid out by daily chapters, one for each day of the year, I tend to start reading it at the first of each year as part of the fresh start mentality, then drift away. I do love this book and am going to try and stick with it for the whole year this time.
In today’s entry Sarah writes about the fleeting nature of life and that we cannot afford to throw away even one “unimportant” day by not noticing the wonder of it all.
I watched this young squirrel munching on a walnut for at least ten minutes today. The little critter was so small and I am happy that it is surviving what might be its first winter.
I’ve read statistics that state the life expectancy for eastern gray squirrels at the time of birth is one to two years.
We are never promised even one minute more than we have right this very second.
