Dying Man’s Daily Journal – Post #1000

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.

    Bill, your words remind me of Michael J. Fox’s book, “Lucky Man”, where even though he has parkinson’s disease, he considers himself very blessed and lucky because of the way God has helped him. (It’s a great book, he’s one of my heroes). Congratulations on your #1000 post! You are a witness to Love being stronger than all those dark things in life that can drag us down. Keep on rambling!

    Congratulations Cousin Bill!

    Who knew the ‘gift of gab’ would serve you so well!! (ha ha) You are an inspiration to many – keep up the good fight and the positive energy! You may not be the reigning ‘Champion of the World’ in cribbage, but you are the “Champion of soldiering on with positivity in your heart’. That is one thing your heart is not lacking – the power to love and care for others. You amaze me. You are one of the most caring men I have every known. Keep soldiering on. Love you lots!!

    Hi cousin Sherry. It is so nice to hear from you and I thank you so much for your kind words of encouragement. I really needed this right now, thank you. Don’t be suprised if you get a phone call from maybe Sean Connery over the weekend. I want to hear about the trip to Australia

      I totally concur with Sherry! She also has the gift of gab and that is a good thing! Great posts and I raise my glass that there may be another 1000. Keep up the good work!

    Continued blessings to you, Bill.
