Sometimes I wake up in the morning and feel a strong sense of gratitude for my life. I realize that life is a circle — we go from infancy where we are dependent on others to take care of us, to adulthood, where we can get out of bed on our own, dress ourselves and do anything we choose to do that day. After a number of years of living, we begin the slow, but inevitable return to dependency on others.
I’m grateful to be in the middle of my life cycle where I’m able to enjoy just being able to do things for myself, and to realize that I am blessed in being able to do so.
Take a moment to think of where you are in the circle of life and all that you have to be thankful for. You may not have all the money or possessions you want, but they’re NOT the important things in life anyway.
Be safe, be well, and please be happy. Be sure to tell those you love that you love them.
