    Now I'm not getting religious whatsoever, and I don't even know if this is the right place to put this, but... I was sitting around wondering what does life mean to people. Here I'll start an example. Fell free to post pics in addition to your words.



    To me life is...
    When my dog is cuddled up with a teddy bear on my lap. (60 lb lab pit mix and I love him )
    The look on a girl with autism the first time she rode a pony I was leading at s volunteering program
    The first snowfall in Chicago at night when magic seems to be in the air
    My hamster falling asleep in my shirt (RIP Sammy)

    Life, to me, is the highs and the lows, and knowing that "this too shall pass". Given that, some of the good things in life are looking in the face of my babies the first time; cuddling my kitties; seeing the happiness in my dog when he gets a new bone, or just gets to go for a walk; being able to just sit quietly reading with my DH next to me.

    Life is learning to be happy with enough.
    Finding the right one. The birth of my children.
    Seeking and attaining 2 dream jobs.
    The love of a loyal pet.
    The knowledge that I am a child of the most high God.

    Life is trying new things, and... Well, I could carry on forever, but it might then get religious in here, so... [​IMG] The End.

    Life is a journey of learning and growing. Surviving on "one day at a time" and "this too shall pass." My personal mantra, "Do nothing to intentionally hurt another."[​IMG]

    Quote:Yes!!! [​IMG] A short blip of learning before going on to the REAL life.

    I read an article once about a young man being interviewed for a high paying executive position. When he was asked what his life goal was he replied, "To go to Heaven and take as many people with me as I can!"

    Loved that reply!!!
