From time to time, we each feel that life has dealt us the toughest of hands with which to play. We feel this way, even if it is a lie that we choose to believe. In our world filled with modern technology, we allow our frustration to boil over when things fail to work in the way that we have come to expect.
These things aren’t important, not really. What is important is the health of our loved ones, collective happiness, protection against the elements, food in our bellies. What price warmth against the ice of winter? What price clean water? What price love?
I have learned some valuable lessons this year. I have grown up. I am grateful that life has presented me with this opportunity. We are all connected. We are part of the collective whole. My actions affect everyone on this planet.
