in korea, a baby’s 100th day is a big milestone that families celebrate because back in the old days it wasn’t as easy for babies to survive that long.
ofcourse in today’s world, we have better access to healthcare and education, but i still regard it as a miracle that my children, husband and i are all alive and happy as one family. therefore, we are thankful that these toes have stuck together and survived baby z’s first 100 days and will continue to for many more hundred days!
the past 100 days have also revealed how precious time is. we cannot turn back nor make any changes to time, but we can change how we live our lives in that time by appreciating each day as a miracle, not taking anything for granted and making the most of today. each day is a gift. and if you believe that each day is an opportunity to make a difference in each other’s lives, then you can become a gift or miracle in someone’s life too.
even albert einstein once said, “There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”
Ecclesiastes 5:18 (MSG)
“After looking at the way things are on this earth, here’s what I’ve decided is the best way to live: Take care of yourself, have a good time, and make the most of whatever job you have for as long as God gives you life. And that’s about it. That’s the human lot. Yes, we should make the most of what God gives, both the bounty and the capacity to enjoy it, accepting what’s given and delighting in the work. It’s God’s gift! God deals out joy in the present, the now. It’s useless to brood over how long we might live.”
