Birthday Gratitude

Back to Gratitude

By Christopher Papp MD

So after 48 rotations around the sun, I find myself exactly where I want to be. And yet, I doubt it will ever be enough. Somehow it is also too much. All of it: life, death, birth, the cycle. Slow down, but fill it all up with love and joy, heartache and pain. I love every moment of it, even when I forget to enjoy it. Sweet wouldn’t be sweet without the bitter. And its finite nature makes it all the more valuable. Irreplaceable. This life. Thank you.
