Because You Have Lived.

To laugh often and much.
To win the respect of intelligent people, and
the affection of children.

To earn the appreciation of honest critics.
To appreciate beauty.
To find the best in others.

To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child,
or a garden patch.

To know even one life has breathed easier because you
have lived.

This is to have succeeded.

    No it isn’t. It’s beautiful and heartfelt and utterly lacking in self-pity, chestbeating or indeed anything other than a deep appreciation of the person you’re writing about.

    Hope you’re ok.

    Thank you. And yes, I’m fine thanks. I found the text somewhere and felt the need to spread it a little.
