The good things in life
After dinner we gathered in a circle with all the kids to sing songs and hear stories. At one point I got up and walked to the back of the group and watched. "Life is good," I thought. Everyone in our group has had some trouble or other over the years. Some have had more problems than others, but here we were, all together, in a great big circle of support. We like being together.
In recent weeks as I have dealt with the loss of a friendship, I look to this group and feel an overwhelming gratitude for their friendship. To say that I love them doesn't quite speak to the warmth and total acceptance I feel from them.
“If we learn to appreciate more of what we already have, we will find ourselves having more to appreciate.”
Life is good!
