Since I have traveled this road many times, I wanted to share this picture as I compare it to the Road of Life. I thank God every day for my life and my family.
While traveling this road — we laugh, we cry; we like, we dislike; we enjoy, we don’t enjoy; we are content, we are not content; we are full of energy, we are tired; we think we will never graduate, we sit and watch our children graduate; we think time goes so slow, then we realize it went too fast. Our attendance at births and graduations then turn into attendance at weddings and funerals.
Notice the road goes on and on, over the plains, over the mountains and there are dark clouds, blue skies, rainbows and we experience them all. We are living our lives but sometimes we don’t see everything around us or enjoy the sights, the sounds, the colors, the flowers, the birds, the people, the animals, and all of the people that surround us each and every day.
So stop, take a deep breath and look around. Life is a joy and, hopefully, you are enjoying it as much as me.
