When we are young we mottle through life having fun and taking most everything at face value.  Taking everything for granted.  As we grow older we start to appreciate things more.  We take time to smell the roses, enjoy things that we do, and listen more intently to our hearts.  Friends seem to come and go in our lives, with the exceptions of the ones that have have touched our heart.  We loose some friends and family to death, and its a total torment for a long time.  After a while we start to get used to them being gone, but there will always be days when we hurt as if we lost them yesterday. Our family becomes important to us in ways that we never imagined.  We think more about God, the world, our lives, and often wonder what we could have or should have changed.  We think of the lost opportunities that past us by, and somehow just can't find peace in knowing we passed them up, but we know they will not come to us again.  They call it live and learn, but I am not sure that is fair.  It seems it's a punishment for living.  There should be no punishment for living.  Life should be full of wonderful experiences and happiness.  Though that is not reality.  We get our hearts broke, our ego's damaged and our passion changed along the way, and its so hard to come out of sometimes.  If everyday you can just find the time to smile and remember God is on our side, it is a good day!
