Life Goes On
In the words of Tim McGraw...
"...I was in my early 40's,
With a lot of life before me,
A moment came that
stopped me on a dime...."
In recent weeks there have been a few events that at first glance seemed to stop me on a dime. From previous blog entries...
Though my friend is not completely gone there is a loss of something both once considered great in value.
Three members of Gary Ceran's family were tragically taken Christmas eve after a wonderful performance of A Christmas Carol.
Five people lost their lives and four others wounded when a teenage gunman went on a rampage through a Salt Lake City mall.
These are among the many things that have nearly brought me to my knees. But life does not stop. It continues. We pick up and we continue. We hold on more dearly to those things that are still of value to us.
The words of Tim McGraw continue...
"I went sky divin',
I went rocky mountain climbin',
I went 2.7 seconds on a bull name Fumanchu.
And I loved deeper,
And I spoke sweeter,
And I gave forgiveness I've been denying,
...And I became a friend a friend would like to have."
Life does go on. Shoppers have flocked back to Trolley Square with a sense of purpose...to continue on. Let's hope that we can grab hold of that renewed opportunity by the horns and be better than we were before.
