Good As It Gets

Updated on February 25, 2015

All It Takes Is Time

There are so many beautiful things to enjoy

We can take an active part in life

By making each day count

Seeing the good and creating something equal or better

It is not always easy

Things don't always go your way

How great it is

When every feeling you love

Slowly finds it's place

Not only in your life but in the people you care about

Day after day

In so many forms we are always pleasantly surprised

Appreciating a fulfilling life and all the goodness that fills every moment

Is not just talked about but experienced

From many points of interest

To bring out the greatest story

Through trial and error

Most of all

In a remarkable way

      Taking each day as our last and always remembering to include those we love so that in the end there are no regrets. This made me think of a friend who was in the same social group of other friends with us back in NYC. He found the love of his life and got married many moons ago. They loved each other a lot and were very active in the Latvian social sphere in NYC. He was around my own age and that is harder to take when you here about it. Apparently a happy, healthy guy with lots of happy years ahead of him and his darling wife. One January morning the angels had come and taken him away in the night. You can imagine his wife when she tried to wake him up in the morning. Sometimes we just don't understand how it can be, but it does happen and I sure hope that his last day was one of the very best and that that night ended with kisses and I love yous.

      Definitely, those pleasant daily experiences overshadow memories of less welcomed coming our way... As if both are destined on our life's journey.

      Voted interesting.
