For 2018

"Life is lived forward, but understood backward. It is not until we are down the road and we stand on the mountain looking back through the valley that we can appreciate the terrain God has allowed us to scale.” Jill Savage

The Story of our lives. Ever think about it?
We are not reading a story, we are writing it.
The beginning I admit kind of happens. But when you go forward and start a little age on you - you do start to be the master of your own life although you don't realize it until you get a bit of age on you.
All the choices we made. The place where we are. Who we are with. Our education.
How are you writing your story? Where are you going to end up?
Are you scared where you are? Do you think you're responsible for where you are? Do you feel powerful or powerless?

I just saw the new Chatty Cathy Geico commercial on tv tonight.

What a hoot.

Story of a life . . . Harry Chapin

I can see myself it's a golden sunrise

Young boy open up your eyes

It's supposed to be your day.

Now off you go horizon bound

And you won't stop until you've found

Your own kind of way.

And the wind will whip your tousled hair,

The sun, the rain, the sweet despair,

Great tales of love and strife.

And somewhere on your path to glory

You will write your story of a life.

That still rings true for me . . .
