With all the things that are going on in the world that get us bothered I am confident when I say that Life Is Great! When I look at my life and the many Blessings that I have in my life I cannot sit here and complain about the things that I don't like or agree with without recognizing all the positive. When I make the comparison there is no comparison. My Life Is Great! I look at where God has brought me to and I smile. I look who God has Blessed me to be a part of my life and I smile. I look at my health and I smile. I look at all the things around me and I can't help but smile because it is a Blessing to be where I am in my life. I am not saying that my life is perfect because no one's is but what I am saying is that I appreciate my life and the people in my life and the things I have been surrounded by. The directions that my life has taken me have not always been in my plans but they have gotten me to where I am right now and I am grateful. You always hear people ask the question "If you could change one thing in your life, what would you change?" My answer to that is nothing because if you change one thing in your past your entire future takes a different direction. The people in your life change, the events in your life change, the lessons you learn are different, the activities that you participated in change, the present that you are standing in right now never happens. What I am saying is stop, take a look at everyone and everything around you, smile and appreciate where you are in life. It is the present so treat it like it is a gift.
