That means delicate, right?
It indicates the need to treat something with great care.
The other day, I was thinking how fragile life is.
The old expression "Here today, gone tomorrow" speaks volumes.
It's so true, too.
Life is very, very precious.
It's as tenuous as a candle flame or a tender new flowering plant.
Each day, each moment, each breath that is given to us is a gift.
It's important to make that realization and treat life with great love and care.
It may be accomplished through a moment of silence and peace.
Or by looking outside and watching the birds at the feeder hungrily eating their seeds.
Or by looking into a child's eyes and seeing the wonder of being alive.
Take time to realize what a gift you have been given to be alive today.
Take time to laugh, to hug, to enjoy, and to appreciate life today, right now, this minute.
In reality, it's all we have!
