OK, so what’s the good news a month into the new year? I guess there’s a lot more blessings to be counted than lack. I’m alive, I’m healthy, I’m living free in a free country. I have a roof over my head, food in the fridge, more junk than I care to organize, many people who love me, many people who like me, and a few people who don’t care for me at all just to keep me level-headed. I can play golf, ride my bike, play bingo on Sunday, attend worship, read, listen, smell, see, touch, feel, cook, eat, wash, dry and fold. I witnessed a guy today who explained hoarsely that he is dying of throat cancer and there he sat calmly reading a newspaper waiting for an appointment in the fresh morning sun. What more can I expect of life than he does? another beautiful day of life to sit freely in the sunshine.
