The Question is...

Real Estate Agent with RETIRED 200305001

I have been pondering over a question lately. The question is... are we all dealt a different hand of cards in life or do we all start with the same hand and choose to play them differently?

Several in my office have recently came up with heath issues including myself. One of mine will cure soon and the doctor has NO idea why me. The second one is because I chose life in the fast lane for about a dozen years.

For one who just left our office, has a few months at best, left. 38 years of heavy smoking was the reason.

Some of the others have ailments that beg to ask why me? So whats the answer to our lot in life?

I think my body is what God gave me and I should take care of it. He gave me choice and sometimes my choices have not been good. I have been trying to do better. Maybe that is why you.

The answer is we are all dealt a different hand of cards in life, now go...and do with it what you will.

Rob - Semi-terrific days  are still part of the adventure, there for a purpose, no doubt. It is the sum total that provides the satisfaction. Stay in the game.

Rob - Well, when I think I don't like the cards, I just re-shuffle and get a new hand.
