When I wake up in the morning it is usually to the sound of a senile cat meowing for attention. Irritating. Or…not.
If I allow it, her annoying shrieking can be my first reminder of the most important thing that will occur (in this new chance at life I have been given); the opportunity to show love to other beings.
There are plenty of things that will confuse me, blind me, and distract me from this purpose, but the purpose will remain and will continue to call out to me through a myriad of voices for as long as I live.
John Green’s movie, The Fault in Our Stars, opens today in theaters. Among other things, it is a good reminder of this bit of wisdom.
