One of the Roman Emperor said this...
"When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive - to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love..." --- Marcus Aurelius
Marcus Aurelius, in full Caesar Marcus Aurelius Antoninus Augustus, original name (until ad 161) Marcus Annius Verus (b. April 26, ad 121, Rome—d. March 17, 180, Vindobona [Vienna], or Sirmium, Pannonia), Roman emperor (ad 161–180), best known for his Meditations on Stoic philosophy. Marcus Aurelius has symbolized for many generations in the West the Golden Age of the Roman Empire.(from-http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/364331/Marcus-Aurelius)
Regardless of whom you are in the world, a rich man, a president, a lovely new-born baby, a first lady, a teacher, a nurse, a farmer, a waitress or.... You are a human being, which most of us would say that we are our parents' love or God's children. It does not matter how much you want to do or how much you have if you do not have the luxury to enjoy it. Thus really, the quote above by someone so majestic dawned upon me that being alive is all that matters!
If you ever need a chance, ask for the chance to be alive, cause only with that, will you be able to breathe new air, to think of what you can do, to enjoy the fruit of your labor and to love like you never did before.
Good morning sunshine! It is my precious privilege that I can see you again today!
