Thursday Thoughts: Thanks for Life

Most of the time, I don't give much thought to the gift of life.  This past week, however, I have been reminded time and time again just how fortunate we are to be allowed to be here on earth. 

Three events have brought this realization home:

First, last week I requested prayers for a family I know.  Today, the father/husband was discharged from the hospital.  I am so happy for him and his family.

Second,  I learned today that one of my extended family members who was battling cancer has been declared tumor-free.  Again, I find myself very happy.

Third, just two days after I watched nurses perform CPR on her tiny body, I held my granddaughter for the first time.  I am happy.



Thanks for life.
