Friends and loved ones, today I was reminded of the pure, unfiltered joy that life generously offers us in the simplest of moments. The reminder came from the radiant smile of my cherished granddaughter, Ruby, captured through a driver’s side mirror as she delighted in the feel of the wind flowing through her hair. A picture of pure, unadulterated happiness, a moment of being completely present, embracing the pure bliss that life is gifting her in that fleeting instance.
Life often sweeps us into a whirlwind of responsibilities and ambitions, and sometimes we forget to embrace the little pockets of joy that are sprinkled throughout our days. The laughter of a child, the warmth of the sun on our faces, the cool breeze rustling through the leaves – all these are reminders of the blessings that surround us each day.
Let us not overlook these gifts, but instead, let us treasure them, for they are the true riches life offers. The simple yet profound moments where we let go and allow ourselves to just be, to immerse ourselves fully in the joy and wonder of the present. It is in these moments where we feel the divine whisper of hope, the silent affirmation that joy, wonder, and love are always within our reach, woven into the simple fabrics of our day-to-day life.
As we navigate the pathways of life, may we always strive to find our ‘Ruby moments’ – those precious instances of spontaneous joy, where we let go of the burdens and simply revel in the beauty that surrounds us. These moments are not just moments; they are glimpses of heaven, reflections of the divine in our earthly journey.
So, here’s my invitation to each one of you: take a pause, breathe in deeply, and allow yourself to absorb the beauty, the joy, the hope infused in each moment. For in doing so, we don’t just exist; we live, we love, and we cherish the wondrous journey that is life.
Sending out waves of love, hope, and encouragement to each one of you to find your own ‘Ruby moment’ today and always. 💖
