Hi Larry: Thanks for the lovely post on my thread. What a lovely man you are! The victims of the Haiti earthquake are in my thoughts and prayers too. I watched the news coverage the past few days with horrid fascination. It is incredible to see the strength of the human spirit though. Without food and water, and with all their earthly possessions gone, the Haitians are reaching inward and finding solace in prayer and song. How do you manage even a semblance of normalcy in such devastating circumstances?
It also brings my "problems" sharply into perspective. You are so right when you say that I should find happiness in even my tough moments. Those people in Haiti would give their souls to have my "problems", I’m sure. It also makes me SO, SO very happy to be living in Canada. I have never known hunger, the discomfort of living without heat, air conditioning or electricity, the discomfort of being without transportation or health care. I am truly blessed. And while I have very little in the bank and am up to my eyeballs in debt, I feel like one of the wealthiest people in the world right now.
Larry, you have done incredibly well on this journey, and I am so proud to be taking it with you. Your posts bring so much wisdom and joy … and so today, I wish you joy.
How lovely that you get to spend regular quality time with your granddaughter. Every moment you spend with her shapes who she is and I’m sure she will remember you with great love for all her life.
RGThis moment is all we really have. Be happy in it.
