On some days I wonder why I am here. In this place at this time. I think back over my life and wonder about the decisions I made, the choices I said yes to and those I turned down, I think about the people I’ve had come and go throughout my life.

I wonder about how everything has come together and I wonder about what the future might hold.

I go for walks and wonder at the world around me.

Why is the sky that shade of blue? Why do spiders have eight legs? How come cats have tongues like sand paper?

I wonder why a single day can hold such joy and such heartache? Such highs and lows?

Most of all I wonder why I am so blessed? I wonder why God chose me? For this?

And I am thankful…so very thankful.
