As each year unfolds, I always ask – “Is it going to get better?” At times I feel that every year is worse than the last, so I evaluate and then ask: what makes a year “better”? Is it more wealth, is it better relationships, is it security, is it a specific accomplishment, is it (insert anything here) – and the list goes on and on. So what makes each year better? Here’s a lousy answer (or excuse if you’d like to call it that) – that I came up with:
Each year is better simply because we are allowed to experience it. Strip off all the add-ons in life – we find that it’s all about life and being alive, that is probably one of the best lessons Ondoy has taught me. So with that I am thankful to God for continually allowing me to experience life – with all it’s ups and downs, and I am also grateful for the added bonus of experiencing life with the people I love.
