Each of us has only one life to live. Some lives are long and some are cut too short. They can be full of happy times, but there can also be sad moments. The events that shape our lives are all pieces of our life's puzzle. The choices we make, the lessons we learn from our life's experiences, and the people who share them with us, all help to influence who we are and who we will become.
I have been around for over 80 years, and during my long life, I have had many experiences and learned many lessons along the way. In sharing some of these with you, it is not my intention to teach or give advice. Nor do I want to tell anyone how they should live, what they should believe, or what they ought to do. Instead, I want to share some of the things I learned that proved to be useful to me on my life's journey. I hope some of these lessons might also be helpful as you make your way on your own journey through life.
