I would think many of you are familiar with Christina Perri's 2012 song "A Thousand Years" -- made madly famous by the fact that it appeared on the soundtrack of movie "The Twilight Saga - Breaking Dawn, Part II."
Now, as the mother of a boy, I'm not very familiar with the "Twilight" series of novels and films other than to know it's a story about a teenage girl who falls in love with a very dashing vampire. (And then, apparently, a werewolf, too? #DontAskMe)
The point is, unless you're a vampire or a werewolf, and I'm pretty sure you aren't, the concept of something lasting for 1,000 years is a tough one to wrap your arms and mind around. At least, for us humans, am I right? I guess sometimes it feels close to that in the ATM line, but still.
Look, for those of us in the know, a thousand years will, at some future point, be like a single day, Capisce? Yeah, I don't either, frankly, but I DO believe it.
Somehow, somewhere, some way, it's all good in the best place there is. And that's a welcome reminder to those of us who blinked to find the last 18 years were but a blur.
Enjoy every day. Be grateful. Be happy. Be lovable...and love. And know nothing really ever ends ... not really.

Ps 90:2, 3-4, 10, 14 and 16 R. (1) In every age, O Lord, you have been our refuge. Before the mountains were begotten and the earth and the world were brought forth, from everlasting to everlasting you are God. You turn man back to dust, saying, "Return, O children of men." For a thousand years in your sight are as yesterday, now that it is past, or as a watch of the night. Seventy is the sum of our years, or eighty, if we are strong, And most of them are fruitless toil, for they pass quickly and we drift away. Fill us at daybreak with your kindness, that we may shout for joy and gladness all our days. Let your work be seen by your servants and your glory by their children. Alleluia See Eph 1:17-18 May the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ enlighten the eyes of our hearts, that we may know what is the hope that belongs to his call.
