August 22--No Stopping It

In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on. 
--Robert Frost

    And it goes on rather quickly, I might add. 
    I am so grateful for the resiliency of the human spirit. It seems we consistently maintain hope and find a way. We are now over five months into mostly stay-at-home due to the pandemic. Life has gone on. We've learned to live without eating out, with very little shopping and travel, missing family and friends. Life went on without major sports and haircuts for several months. 
    If you've ever grieved a loved one, you know life goes on. It's never the same, but it goes on. The same is true for the seemingly infinite dreadful events that can happen to us--war, disease, crime, accidents, natural disasters, on and on. The human spirit is designed to persevere. 
    Life will go on. We can go with it kicking and screaming, or cruising in the divine flow. (See August 20 post--Attitude.) We can merely survive or we can thrive. Since life moving on is relentless, it behooves us to make careful choices as to how we use our precious resource.
    Another day to enjoy,
