I’m alive! I’m alive!

My 7 year Gratitudiversary: 6/6/16

What does it mean to be alive?

Maybe, to some, my celebrating and gratitude is getting old after 7 years. But I don’t care. I can’t contain it. I can’t keep it from leaking out of me.

I want to shout from the roof tops, “I could’ve died but I didn’t!”

Miracles lined up for me to be standing here today.

Fellow humans went out of their way, some even risked their lives, to get me to safety, to care for me.

My consciousness vacated the horror… but my body endured.

Anthony’s spirit was there with me.

Cam’s spirit was there with me.

I’m bewildered as I contemplate the miracles and magic that lined up for me to be healthy, here in this moment writing these words.

What is this life all about?

We get lost in the particles.

We fool ourselves into thinking it’s about the minutia.

There’s pain, there’s loss, there’s joy, there’s sorrow, there’s love…

Look at your fellow humans and SEE them!

Acknowledge that we’re all in this mystery together!

Feel!

Be!

Live!

Live, people! Live!

Take this moment to realize that life is precious.

Live it!
