Appreciation for the Gift

11 Nov


By:Carl Johnson (Carl The Muse)

I love my life and so I wake up enthusiastic and ready for the new day. I often wake before the sun, as if my soul anticipates its arrival and I stay up even later than normal on nights we have a full moon. This is not my new trend, I have done this again and again for my entire life.

 I do it because I love life, I love love and I feel blessed to have this life, I am always full of energy and I try my best to project a smile, if a smile is not what I project it is only because I am lost in a deep thought. I am often in deep thought about this life and I am often reflective on when things went wrong as well as when they go right. I live life fully through the sunshine or the night, no matter the season I am fully immersed in this life

I even approach routine things such as the drive to my kids schools or a trip to the grocery store with excitement because I know the blessing is in being able to do it.  I have a nice car to get there and money to spend on what I need and things I simply want. These small blessings that many of us fail to see are what so many others hope and pray for.

I am learning to live it with a smile because blessed people should and living happily makes me anticipate the start of the next adventure as long as I am alive, loving and doing right, I have a reason to look forward to days and the nights.

I am just a man who is happy to be alive and alright. I appreciate my gifts and I give what I get and he keeps giving to me so it all seems to fit.

This is just a tip of how to live because if you show appreciation for the gifts maybe God will continue to give.

      Thank you Sharon, I am glad that it spoke to you and I am honored to be considered. I write when I get a message to share most times I do not even remember what I wrote and then I get these comments and likes and it motivates me to write more.
