365 Ways to Make it Through a Year!

Day 1 obtain a traumatic head injury that puts you in a coma for twelve months.

Day 366: Wake up. If you feel up to it visit Staples and push the “That was easy” button.

Actually,  if you have made it this far, worrying about making it through a year or even a day is a fruitless exercise, for who by worrying can add a single hour to a day?

We have this moment to:

Say I love you

To give or get a hug

To embrace the day and the fact you are in it.

To spend a moment with a child or parent.

To pet your dog or cat or someone else’s.

To observe a rainbow.

To spend as many minutes as possible exploring the countless things we can be thankful for… of which you dear reader are one for me.
