A few years ago I began hearing stories about how ancient Mayan calendars prophesied "The End Of Time" occurring on December 21, 2012. For months afterward, I lived in a sort of deep seeded fear day in and day out. The fear of just exactly "what" might occur on that day. Will we all be burned to smithereens by some meteorite? Or will we all drown in some phenomenally huge tidal wave? Will there be any advance warning or will it happen like a thief in the night as the Bible says? Will my kids be scared? Will I be with my kids when it happens or will they be at school? And just when I had somewhat recovered from my panicked state, I saw yet another show recently called THE NOSTRADAMUS EFFECT which once again has gotten me thinking about all of this apocalyptic mumbo jumbo..... all over again!!! But I am choosing to look at things from a different perspective this time around. For starters..... whatever may or may not occur on December 21 three years from now, there are a few things that I know for sure. I will be 45 years old then and have had---for the most part---a pretty darned good life. I have seen a good bit of this world that we live in. I am well acquainted with its beauty and diversity. I have known the true meaning of real love. I am lucky enough to be married---just once---to a wonderful man and am blessed with 3 beautiful children. My children are the light of my life! One can never imagine the absolute and all consuming love which comes from the blessing of children until you have had them. For me....this is the reason I was here in this world. And if this world must come to an end in 2012 then I will count myself lucky to have raised these 3 glorious souls for as long as God has allowed.
