Last night friends and I carried on our annual tradition of watching the spectacular fireworks display to celebrate this fine country’s birthday. This made me wonder why some people love to celebrate events and others do not.

I have a friend who will be celebrating her 20th wedding anniversary and is planning an amazing party. Other people want to crawl under a rock and hide for big birthdays. I am not judging but I do wonder what makes this difference.

I am a fireworks kind of person with some celebrations. For me it has to do with giving thanks and being grateful for all that has been. At the very least it is a way of marking a milestone.

How do you celebrate life’s big moments?



About sstyves

A Canadian prairie girl rooted in Ignatian spirituality, I seek God in all things. Whether I catch a glimpse of the Divine and delight in its presence in nature or in the beauty of an encounter with someone, I am ever so grateful that I can recognize the Creator. I greet each new day with hope and happiness, expecting blessings and miracles because I am created to praise, love and serve God. This blog is one way of realizing that through my writings, prayers, and photography. To God be the Glory!
