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!

  1. I read today that people born on Leap Day are called "Leaplings" ... loved it :)

    And all day today I wished people a "happy bonus day" :)
