Happy Birthday Aren!
Today is my son’s 18th birthday – wow! Eighteen years ago, in the late afternoon, this 6’4″ son of mine emerged from my body. This is truly a miracle when you think about it. And it felt like a miracle that day. It was as though someone sprinkled fairy dust in the room when he appeared.
So, I find myself thinking about major life transition points today. Birth and death being the major ones we all must experience in order to be here. All the rest of life’s transitions are optional in some way. But not birth and death – we all go through them, one way or the other. We can fight and struggle our way through them, or we can get in the flow and perhaps have an easier ride. Just a thought.
