Comments: The Wonder of It All

Though you made some valid points, I actually find that I am more and more avoiding media presentations so full of pain and death. Life, in and of itself, is sufficiently full of pain and disappointment....why introduce more in the name of feeling alive? Rather, I'm reminded of my gift of life when my 7-year old is sitting in my lap, and I bury my nose in his hair as if to smell his very essence......when I examine an unlikely, wonderful friendship that came to be at a time when I needed a friend the most (I believe she was a gift from God to see me through the road that lay ahead).....when I turn over in the bed and find myself next to my husband's warm body, and I'm thankful that he loves me as I am.....these are my reminders of the wondrous gift of life.
