Oh, what silly thoughts of
“What can I get?”
When you have been given
the ultimate gift
Life freely given
Gratitude lovingly given
I speak to my stepchildren a lot about life and the decisions we make in regards to how we live. A current theme has been the idea of serving others.
My stepchildren have, at times, had the idea that life is here to serve them. It is not.
Life is a gift- a gift of living, of experiencing, of sensing, of sharing.
Our return act is to serve this gift- to act with gratitude, kindness, awareness, and importantly, joy in relation to having received this gift.
I am never sure what impact my words/actions may have or may not have on my stepchildren. However, these are the things I believe and I do want them to realize what a gift they have been given.
