The Game Of Life

The Game Of Life Life is a game and we are the players. We were delt some cards and we play the best way, we know how. How do we know if we win, or lose, when we are learning the game as we go along? It is not easy to play this game, when no instructions have been made. The game is not easy, but we hang in there - until one day the game is over and only than we will find out if we played the right cards, or if just lost in this game called LIFE...

    It's like when we brought our newborn son home from the hospital and I jokingly asked my wife, 'where's the instruction manual?' If we live our lives by the Golden Rule I think we'll be OK. Well done Lucilla! Best wishes, Keith
