Love to you

Boy, do we ever know we’re behind. We have a pile of blog posts queued, a pile of stories to tell. It’s funny how time gets away from you, isn’t it? Funny how life can sneak up and days can blend together. Sun rise, sun set, start again… right?

Yesterday’s events in Boston were senseless. A marathon. Let that sink in. A MARATHON. A celebration of health, fitness, life. An act so senseless, so unfathomable that we’re left today reeling in a hollow attempt to understand. Why then? Why them? Why now?

Hug the ones you love today. Look at the blue sky we’re fortunate to see, look at the clock that dictates the rush of our days, look into your mind and slow down. Maybe you have an hour. Maybe you have five minutes. Maybe just a moment. Ignore the rush, ignore the hustle, stop chasing whatever that next thing you’re after is. Just stop. Look around you and think about what it is you truly value. Then embrace it. Maybe it’s a person, or maybe it’s an idea, or a thought… our guess is that whatever it is, it’s not tangible. You can’t pick it up, you can’t sell it on eBay, you can’t pull out your wallet and replace it.  Right?

Take this moment. Breathe in. Be.

As always, we love you. And we ask that you send what love you have to those in Boston. Whether or not they were on that finish line, today they are hurting. Let’s do something about that.
