“Difficult to see. Always in motion is the future”.
Why do we try to control things over which we have no influence? Why do we try to predict that which we can’t possibly see? For Yoda, the future is difficult to see. For mere mortals, the future is impossible to see. Yet, how many times have I asked myself why I couldn’t control the future, something over which I have no influence and cannot see? I do know the past, but I can’t live there. I can only live in the present. 18 months ago my heart and world shattered. 18 months from now is irrelevant. What I have is today. Today I can treasure the memories from the holidays 2 years ago where we had Sophie in our arms. Today I can anticipate the holiday season to come where I will hold her love and beauty in my heart. May you cherish today, for it is all we have. And may her love and beauty continue to inspire us all.
