There is no way to really describe how I feel sitting here writing post #1,000. This is so very far beyond anything I could have imagined. This is one of the posts that is difficult for me to write. I must have started it 6 or 7 times but could never seem to get it to be anything like what was in my heart, what I was trying to say. I appreciate the suggestions offered by a number of you my dear blogging friends and yes a list of the things I have learned will be going up shortly. Last evening I realized something that well I have known all along I am not a writer I am a rambler. That is how all of my other posts have gone up and that is how this one is going to be. I sat down said my prayer routine asking for guidance in finding the words that may help someone, anyone, here is the ramble.
Has my life been a perfect life free of stress and ISSUES? NO!! Have I lived my life in the perfect way? (that is a big LOL as I say) NO!! Today, is my life perfect? NO!! Am I living the perfect life today? (again big LOL as I say) NO!!! Have there been times of great joy, love and wonder in my life? YES!!!! Has my life been worth living? YES!!! Is my life now worth living? YES!!!!!! My life is no different than that of anyone else, it is what I/we make of it. There is live in this body of mine and I am so very grateful and appreciative.
Do I consider myself to be a blessed man, such a lucky man to have the life I do? YES!!!!
For the fact that I am sitting here and able to write this post, I AM STILL HERE!!!!!. I give thanks to God, my family and friends. I give a really big thank you to all of the wonderful people, internet friends that have contributed so much towards making this possible. Your prayers, supporting words of encouragement mean so much. You have helped me through some difficult times and I thank you so very much.
May God bless you each and every one.
