A Life Well Lived


If you’re kind to people who dial the wrong number,
If the sight of a red cardinal against a path of snow gives you pause,
If you don’t always have to be first at a four-way stop,
If you smile more than you complain,
If you still marvel at the caterpillar/butterfly thing,

If you sometimes have something to cry about,
If you still can spot a good climbing tree,
If you can share,

If you throw the little fish back,
If your heart hurts for another,
If in the silence before sleep you are filled with the sense of gratitude……

……you have life well-lived.
