Lifetime

Laughter, to lighten our daily burdens
Insight, to seek the path that is most fulfilling
Faith, in God, family and self
Enjoyment, in the day to day blessings
Togetherness, a sense of belonging to friends and community
Intelligence, to be inquisitive and to question why
Memories, to warm us when life seems cold
Expectation, to grow and blossom

    This should go on the inside of serious greeting card as it is that worthwhile. It is better than quite a few that I have ever read. Sorry about the delay in responding to your kind remarks, but I was moving all last month and this, too. Regards, Grard.

    I think you have captured all of the essential elements that make the gift of life so special, Lena. Haven't seen you online in a while, but I think you have given new insight to the acrostic form here. Love, Carolyn
