Once in a Blue Moon…


Once in a Blue Moon…I’ve heard that expression all my life…indicating that something doesn’t happen very often…and…yet…I didn’t have a clue as to what a blue moon actually was…don’t know that I’d ever thought about it…

Of course…now I know that a blue moon is the second full moon in the same month…and they are fairly rare…after today…the next one will be in 2015…

So…Bertha…says I should have quite a busy day today…doing all the things that I say I only do…once in a blue moon…seeing the people that I only see…once in a blue moon…the list could go on…but I think you get the point…

But…she also challenges me…to do something different on this day…to step outside of my box…to actually sit the box on the curb…to see my life in a fresh new way…dream new dreams…the ones that may have seemed too big yesterday…

She challenges me…to celebrate the life that I’ve had…and the life that I am creating…

She challenges me…to see each interaction I have today…as even rarer than the blue moon…because…each interaction will only come once…never to be repeated except in my memory…

She challenges me…to be aware…to be mindful…to be in the moment…to savor the uniqueness of this day…of every day…

And…today…once in a blue moon…I’m listening…

PS…if the moon is made of cheese…is the blue moon made of Roquefort…sorry…I couldn’t resist…
