Gift of Life

In the fashion of Maria Von Trapp, let's start at the very beginning; a very good place to start. I met life on May 9,1987. At an impressive 2lb 4oz, I passed more for a frog than a child.

There's a Chinese Proverb that states, "The miracle is not to fly in the air, or to walk on the water, but to walk on the earth." We are all little miracles. Our bodies holding a heart that will beat 3,000 million times in a lifetime. Our mind that contains, on average, about 100 billion nerve cells and when those nerves fire up, that impulse travels at about 170 miles per hour. In the last 24 hours, you've breathed almost 24,000 times. In and and out.

We are only given one human body, one life. This is it. I often ask myself, "Am I treating my life as a miracle or less than? Am I using this gift for good? What am I learning from this life?"

What are some of your thoughts on the gift of life?


  1. I remember that day vividly. You are destined for a great work. I felt it then and I feel it now. I am glad you are doing this blog. You have a wonderful perspective and outlook that is so positive and uplifting. Anyone that reads what you have to say will feel better having done so.
    I love you.

  2. Beautiful beginning to a beautiful young woman's life. Thank you for being a miracle in my life :)

  3. I have to remind myself sometimes that the little things I'm struggling with are jut tiny little blips on the radar. They're not going to make me crash unless I let them. I'm so glad to see you've got your blog up! :)

  4. I remember this tender beginning for a such a bold hearted girl! You grabbed each day and lived to the fullest! You are a beautiful girl. I will always love you.
