In Arnie’s Memory

“I am grateful for what I am and have.  My thanksgiving is perpetual.  It is surprising how contented one can be with nothing definite – only a sense of existence.  My breath is sweet to me.  O how I laugh when I think of my vague indefinite riches.  No run on my bank can drain it, for my wealth is not possession but enjoyment. “ Henry David Thoreau

Boundless Joy

I attended a funeral today of a dear family friend and the room was filled with people who wanted to honor him and share how he touched their lives in the most personal and significant ways. These testaments were well earned by this wonderful man with a big heart who lived each day believing it would be filled with miracles.

One person shared with me that although he was battling cancer for many years, he did not have a signed DNR.  I was surprised to hear this, because for me, I would assume that someone with such a zest for life would not want to live it in a compromised way.  But as the day went on, and I reflected on how full of joy and wonder he was, it became clear to me that of course he would not have a DNR. He would never want to miss out on the opportunity to see a new day.

Today’s mindfulness lesson is in honor of Arnie, “my breath is sweet to me…for my wealth is not possession but enjoyment.”
