…..Through the Circle of Life

by Gail Angelo


In the last 6 months I have watched the circle of life unfold before my eyes.  Six months ago our sweet granddaughter was born at 24 weeks.  It was a tough landing AND she is remarkably in service since she took her first breath.   Seven weeks ago our first grandson was born and he is making his presence known as well.  He is already hilarious and such a blessing to us all!   What a gift to be able to watch how they will make their lives matter.  Three weeks ago my sweet and gracious father-in-law passed away and we get to reflect on how he made his life matter.  In reflection on the circle of life, I have come to realize that:


Life is not intended to be a stockpile of accomplishments leading to success, rather, it is a series of awakenings on the path toward service and significance. 


What is one thing you can do to nurture the awakenings available to you in your life?
