Our good fortune is dependent upon the cooperation and contributions of others. Every aspect of our present well-being is due to hard work on the part of others. As we look around us at the buildings we live and work in, the roads we travel, the clothes we wear, or the food we eat, we have to acknowledge that all are provided by others. None of them would exist for us to enjoy and make use of were it not for the kindness of so many people unknown to us.

- Think of it this way Bobby:
When you throw up a ball does it float away? The laws of nature would not allow that on the earth. You have thrust with your being both physically and mentally an object in a specific direction whether to make a basket, hit over the net, or make a better life for you and your family.
Is a descending ball any less valuable than an ascending one? Is the goal not to land eventually for a the shot, the score, or for a restful period of time? I would probably be more worried if you were just lukewarm and floating through life without the highly skilled, all your effort, and execution of your hearts passions.
It just feels funny is all. Think about a race. I used to run track and you put forth all your effort in the race and hit the finish line exhausted, gasping for breath, and mentally drained, expended. That doesn't mean it is forever, just that you put forth an excellent effort and now it is time to regroup, reevaluate, set strategy, rest, and find your footing once more.

- It is always a time of decision as I recently heard it called. Each one of us, each and every moment is in a time of decision to go right or follow wrong, to add to this life of ours or take away from the goodness that abounds. It is always a time of decision. Claim your own life. Decide.Aug 2, 2012

- Thanks for always sharing your wisdom. This post has affirmed my value of supporting my parents when they're old instead of sending them off to a seniors' nursery home because they've always been taking care of me. And I should give back to my community.Nov 2, 2012
