Do you have something in your life, that you do, that makes your life worth living?

It could be, being a Pilot, Racing Cars, Horse Riding, or even something as minor as designing and building little projects in your man cave.

I’m not talking about family, but without this thing, you could be so miserable, that you don’t have a chance of having a family.

Does it define and make you who you are?

How would you feel if you were never allowed to have this in your life?

My animals..if I could never have another animal..I would want to die.
When they needed me my kids were my reason for living, They are all grown now and on their own. I have no empty nest syndrome either. But, I have always had a furry thing in my life and more often then not more then one...

Having access to a vehicle and being able to go places on a whim. The first thing I do everytime I go home from Europe is go for a drive in my Jeep.

Everything...I love life even with the ups and downs.

I love the sunshine, fresh air, birds chirping, the wildlife in our woods, my garden, breathing, being able to walk and run, laughing, being healthy, having a wonderful man who loves me above all else, my dog, my garden.....and on and on.


Yeah....life is worth it.

Obviously, my husband is #1. There are times that he is challenging, but overall, he enriches my life and makes it worthwile.

Other factors would be my cats who give me much pleasure.

The things I have planned for my future also make getting up in the morning much easier. One day I will have my little cabin in the woods, my beautiful garden (heirloom, non GMO veggies) and live a simple, uncluttered life. The prospect of those days makes my happy and eager to move forward with my life.
