A Gift for the New Year

Hi sons,

Today is the first day of 2015. When I was young and visualized what this year would be like, I was sure we’d be driving/flying our cars and visiting outer space for vacation. Although these things aren’t happening, life is pretty darn awesome.

I saw this video about a year ago, and it stayed with me. I thought it would be a perfect thing to watch on the first morning of the year. It did not disappoint and inspired me again to stop and pay attention to nature and to life and bask in the gratitude of it all. It really is magnificent. Here are about nine minutes well worth your time. Please watch it, my sons. Every day is a gift. YOU are a gift to the Universe and of course, to me.

I love you.
