There is no such thing in anyone’s life as an unimportant day. ~Alexander Woollcott
The last day of the calendar year is no exception. I am blessed this morning with a day of vacation before tomorrow’s holiday. In fact, I have had a lovely long break from my day job at the end of 2007, and I am trying not to spoil these last two days by fretting about going back to work (i.e., being other than in the present moment)!
A few days ago, I wrote about the unimportance of the calendar in marking beginnings (see “A New Year” below), so I suppose the same goes for endings. Still, December 31 does prompt us to review the past year and to look ahead to the next, and I think there is value in that activity (see “Becoming”).
May I remember that each day of the new year is grace. May I live fully and with awareness and gratitude each of those important days.
