Life is just about what you make of it. We have good times and we have bad times and it always seems that it is the bad times we love to talk about, but over time it is always the good times we remember. As I was sitting and talking with Sharon last night which is something we do just about every night, we were talking about things in the past. We had quite a few rough patches that we had to get through as life through curve balls our way and as I tried to recall all of the details of those memories, I simply could not do it. I know that in each situation we had to step up to the plate and take on each problem head on and work through it and eventually get past it, but what strength it took is actually beyond me. All I know that because we did it before so many times I have the faith that if any problem should come our I do have the strength and know how to take care of it.
But it is the good times I can recall every moment of without hesitation. The sight of the wild horses walking on the beaches of Maryland. The smell of the ocean while sitting on the shores of Oregon, or the sand between my toes on the beach on Outer Banks of North Carolina. The soft breeze as it blew through the leaves as we sat at a riverbank high up at the end of a trail in Mt. Hood along with the force felt from the energy of a might waterfall at Niagara Falls. The way Sharon’s lips felt the first time we kissed after months of kidding around with each other and never knowing that we would someday be married. And so, so many more which would take me a lifetime to recall and write down.
With these thoughts in mind I can recognize these good times as I live them and know that it too will be a lasting loving memory with a flame that never dies. And also recognize that during hard times I have the strength to get through it and in the future I will probably forget most of it. Just simply live life and enjoy those moments so dear to our hearts and simply deal with whatever problems come your way. In the end it will be the good times that are most important to you.
I am finally back on the treadmill and it does feel wonderful. Blood sugar seems to be in check and body weight is balanced.
