I really had a great week, this week, and it reminded me that I often forget to give credit to those that bring so much enjoyment into my life. Sometimes music helps me to relax and sets my mind in the proper state to say the things that should be said and ofttimes are left unsaid.
Below is one of my favorite pieces. Maybe if you play it, while you read the rest of this piece, your time will be better spent. If my words lack meaning for you then just close your eyes and enjoy the music.
It is so easy to get wrapped in thinking only about ourselves and our needs, to the point that we completely forget about others and their needs. I know I am often guilty of that and it is good when some unplanned event brings me back to realizing how lucky I am.
Here I am living a life that many can’t even dream of or imagine. I have the best companion that any man could ever hope for. One that provides me with love, conversation, understanding and a smile that raises my spirits on the saddest of days. Thank you Lilliam.
I have a blog that has provided me with friends that have taken the time to write me from all over the world. It has provided me with entertainment and in some small way, I believe has provided some insight in what time in Chiriquí might be like for others. Thank you readers.
I have had the opportunity to raise awareness of others in need in Chiriquí and have sometimes assisted in seeing that those needs are being filled. I have been able to meet people like Tom McCormack who is truly a person that gives to others without expecting anything other than a smile in return. Thank you Tom.
I have been able to meet people studying English in several classes around David. Being able to assist them in conversational practice and seeing the gratitude they express for this simple giving of time is so fulfilling. Thank you students.
I have a great family back in the US that keeps me apprised of what is happening in their life and they take the time to share it with me. Thank you family.
I have been provided with good health and the opportunity to smell the roses. Thank you God.
There was a post I did a long time ago called Life Compared To A Thousand Marbles. It was very instrumental in helping me to realize that all the money in the world can’t bring you happiness and that you need to take a little time every now and then to pay attention to the important things in life. You might enjoy reading it.Thank you to the person that sent that email to me.
Now go out and have a wonderful day, but not before you tell someone you love that you love them.
