to be given the gift of life "oh" what a wonderful thing"
to have been created from man and woman
to experience life's many challenges,from birth to death, your first cry to your last sigh,to embrace all that life has to offer,without being afraid to live, and to take the many leaps of faith, which this world demands of us,do not be afraid and hinder your growth
explore the many wonders of mother earth, enjoy all that she gives you
the good and the bad,seek always the good and do not despair when you are confronted with disappointments, for as long as you are on this earth you will experience some kind of calamities and adversaries,do you not realize how blessed we are
take time to look at the rising sun each morning, shinning in the sky
its magnificent colours of gold with pinks and blues draped across the horizon
listen to the rain drops beating on your window pane, each drop playing its own musical tune, before busting into a zillion water beads, forming an abstract, the envy of any canvas
feel the dew under your feet in the early morning as you walk on the green grass, look at the beauty all around you, smell the scent of the flowers as they awaken, listen as the little creatures stir, and the birds begin to sing
"oh" what a glories day to be alive"
in the evening watch the setting sun, and immerse yourself in its vibrant colours of fire gold and reds shimmering over the ocean
look to the night sky, see the twinkling stars glittering like diamonds in the sky, and the bright golden moon "oh" what a wonderful night to be alive"
know matter were you live on this earth take time to enjoy your life, there is beauty in all things, " you just have to pick the gold from the glitter"
and as we continue life's journey, remember that life is simple, but we humans with our insatiable hunger to consume beyond are needs has made it so complex
believe in the creator and the power of prayer, live life by loving, giving and forgiving, moving forward with integrity and gratitude
"oh" how wonderful it is to be alive"
