Tapped on the Shoulder

To each there comes in their lifetime a special moment when they are figuratively tapped on the shoulder and offered the chance to do a very special thing, unique to them and fitted to their talents. What a tragedy if that moment finds them unprepared or unqualified for that which could have been their finest hour.      ~ Sir Winston Churchill


Jenna said to me the other day, "Mom, your life is always about discovering what's around the corner, moving on, moving forward, moving new. I don't know you any different." And I said to her, "Life is about progress, about being prepared when those moments come along, being prepared to answer, to decide, to change." I believe that being unprepared or unqualified for what could be my finest hour would indeed be a tragedy.

I know this journey is one of those times I've been tapped on the shoulder -
Everything is as it should be.
