“The Wonder of Life” by Mary Morrissey

Have you ever seen the Thornton Wilder play, Our Town? A character named Emily has passed on to the next realm, and she is given the opportunity to relive one day of her life –she chooses her twelfth birthday.

From the higher realm, she views her life as she was on that day. She comes down the stairs in the house where she was raised and the children are playing and laughing. The father and mother are in the kitchen cooking. There’s the smell of the coffee and the sound of the toast being buttered.

She just sees life happening and says, “Oh life! Does anyone really know how wonderful you are while they are living it?”

What a great question to ask ourselves. Does anyone know? Do I ever really know how wonderful my life is while I’m living it? You get a chance to live your whole lifetime in minuscule today, one day at a time.

I wish you a wondrous day remembering how wonderful life is while you’re living it.

To Your Beautiful Life,

Mary Morrissey
