[B&W Gratitude Challenge #7] On being alive

day 7 being alive
It’s the last day of this challenge, which has made me reflect on those that/whom I’m thankful to:

a book and an inspiring friend

healthy children

my husband

my parents

dedicated teachers

my MIL

Coming to #7, the last of the challenge, I’m forced to choose just one more.

I started searching deeply… and finally, I’m just thankful to be alive…

To be here for my three young children…

To be here for my aging parents…

To be here to make a positive difference to this world.

Life is a finite journey, where we’d reach the end some day. Yet we don’t know how long we’d be around.

I’ve witnessed enough critical illnesses and deaths in the extended family and was in the insurance industry long enough to understand that such events can strike anyone at any age.

Though I do my best to maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle, there’re many factors beyond control.

So yes, I’m just thankful to be alive today.

“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.” – Mahatma Gandhi
