Seeing The Sun Through The Rain

For My Uncle Joe

When does life really begin and end ?

Each day reveals a new beauty

How many sunshine's do we have in one lifetime ?

How many people miss out what is really there ?

The clouds that line the sky

Like bricks on a wall

The trees scattered all over the world

Keep our air clean and don't have to be watered

To name only two

My uncle told me

Don't worry

There is nothing to worry about

Made me think

How right you are

We all have our time

Some longer than others

It's not how long you have but how you spend your days that counts

So if we can learn to enjoy the weather

No matter how awful it is

Unless you live in Florida

Where it is sunny every day

You can learn to face any challenge

I have heard uncle Joe say many times

Life has been very good to me

Everyone should live the life I have had

I have done so many things

Other people just dream about

Watching and sharing life with my family is the top of my list

Who could ask for more ?

In a world filled with the newest computers , smart phones ,flat screen t.v.'s

To the latest inventions

I have been there

To cruise ships that travel all over the world

How many people can say they have been on 46 cruises

Though many things change through our life

My love for life and I am proud to be an American has never

At 92 with a great attitude and always positive

I think if he wanted to share one thing it would go something like this

As you turn on the t.v. and watch the news

Look for other people who are as happy as me

It is never to late to decide

Who you want to be

Your uncle is a wise man and at that age more power to him and may God bless his each day. He is an inspiration for sure. Got me singing the Beatles song Here Comes the Sun. Passing this on to inspire others.

Yes we all need to look around us and make the most of life, even if circumstances don't allow us to go far afield. Life is what you make it; look for the positives and you'll win every time!
