Years in Life & Life in Years

My 40th birthday is coming up in a few days. I have very mixed feelings about. Part of me thinks it doesn't matter; while another part thinks it is a really big deal.

Yestedday, I received a birthday card from a friend, Sr. Ann Peterson, osu. The card says:

In the end,

it's not the years

in your life

that count.

It's the life

in your years.

By: Abe Lincoln

I am so struck by that message and realize that I need to start living my years and not accumulating them. Life is a gift that we must treasure and foster. I'm going to begin today by taking time to get ourdoors and enjoy the fresh air that God so willingly shares with us.

Sr. Jeannie Humphries, osu
