A Year Older…Wiser..?

So yesterday, the big clock in the sky turned over and clicked one more number onto my Life Odometer. I remember as a youth, dreading growing older, but now more than ever I realize it’s a privilege to say “Hey, I’ve lived another year!” Two years ago, I wasn’t sure I’d see my 50th birthday. But now I’m 51. As we get older, we realize that every breath we take is a gift. Every moment that makes us smile, everything that fills our hearts with joy or love is precious.. Cherish it! We all have down moments and bad feelings, but don’t live there. Rise up, realize that you, we, are all here to make each others’ lives and this world, a better place. That is my advice to you all. Live, love, and do good in this world. And if you’re fighting your own demons, like I am with cancer, please don’t give up!
