May today have deep memory. May we recall who we are at this moment as a reflection of where we have been. May we see our life’s narrative, starkly, honestly, fondly, and regretfully. May we take in all the memories and experiences, and own them. Cherish the happy memories, confront the difficult memories, mourn the losses and accept the rest. Take them all in, for they are who we are. Then, imagine who we want to be tomorrow, and visualize what future memories might take us there. Let us not be too sentimental in looking back, but rather active in creating a reality today that will bring us pride and contentment tomorrow. For all of our days, past, present, and future we give thanks. Blessed Be, and Amen.
