this saturday is different from the other saturdays
It happens like such a cliche, right out of the blue, but then that's how these things go. You get the kind of phone call that you never want to get and everything is changed. Things are still in the same place but seem to have shifted, maybe two degrees to the left, or is it to the right? In just one tiny instant, everything is different. And the old sayings we are all so familiar with, the ones we see every day, those trite one liners in a fancy font getting lost among cheesy rainbow or galaxy or sunset backgrounds and cheap, tediously bleating sentiment, take on a new, refreshed meaning. They always were true but the urgency and poignancy is recharged and we are reminded of what they actually tell us. One big something and all the little worries and the medium sized worries are swept away. You don't know what is around the corner. Make the most of every moment. Make time to do what you want to do. Make sure you find the delight and the joy in those little everyday nothing things that make up so much of life. And tell your loved ones that you love them.
