The Gift of Being Alive

I almost didn’t make it

As a child, one of the stories that I heard was how my mother contracted Rubella (German measles).

I should have been a boy

As the oldest grandchild of my generation, I didn’t have many cousins to play with when I was little. Instead, I hung around the adults and listened to their conversations.

Fear drove me to self-determination

For the early half of my life, I would say that I was driven by fear, even terror.

The gift that keeps giving

The older I get, the more things I’ve found to be grateful for.
