Leap of Faith
'Tis Leap Day, that strange extra day that rolls around on the calendar once every four years, creating a February 29. I know someone who was born on Leap Day and has, consequently, only celebrated her real birthday once every four years. She claims to be only a fraction of her chronological age, as a result. A friend wrote recently, "Turn around, live in the moment, and believe." I believe that miraculous things can happen on this extra day of the year. It's like a bonus -- another day to start fresh, turning our perspective around so that we can embrace the joy of the day and believe that good prevails. Perhaps my viewpoint is just a leap of faith, but I choose to think that Leap Day is a great reminder that each day is a bonus, another opportunity to do right, feel grateful and start anew. Happy Leap Day!
