Life, I don’t know if I have told you that I love you and how perfect you are. I really can’t think of any life I would rather have.
You are as near to being a perfect companion as I could have ever imagined.
I wake up in the morning to a rising sun that elicits songs from all of my feathered friends. A sun that never fails to show up and lifts the leaves of all the plants in my garden as it does my spirit.
You provide me the opportunity to enjoy the smell of bacon some mornings, pancakes on others and various other fragrances that continue to make my mouth water and provide memories though out the day.
You have provided me with friends that check on me when I am sick and rejoice with me when I am well.
You have provided me with children and grandchildren that make me proud to say I am a father and a grandfather.
You have provided me the opportunity to learn that adversity is just another way of pointing out what is really important and not important.
You have shown me that a little rain only means that things will bloom brighter tomorrow.
You have provided me the time to understand that all evils and problems can’t be solved or prevented, but that doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t keep trying to improve things.
You have shown me that sharing is better than hoarding and that the more I share the better I feel.
You have shown me that a smile will evoke a smile, that a kind word will open closed minds, and that the language of love and caring requires no translation.
Yes Life, I want to thank you for being my Life. Take me where you will. Use me as you will. Remain with me as long as we a productive together.
