The sun sets on another day...

A long time ago the United States of America declared independence from Britain to form a new country. now we are a strong country and we lead the world in many ways. I hope you can take a moment and consider the foundations of your Independence if you live in the USA, and if not, take a moment and consider what this day may mean to you.

So as the sun sets on another day, be happy, and enjoy the moment, no matter what...

The sun sets on another day...

There is so much to do each and every day it is assured we cannot do it all. Each day is a series of choices on how to approach life, and how to live with our approach to life. Obviously there will be people we make happy, and people we make sad along the way. In the end we should always consider how fortunate we are to have choices to begin with and roll with the punches to be the best people we can be. The path is sometimes less than clear, instead it is clouded by situations and people that may slow us down a little. Now, I don't think they are like the "rate suckers" on the insurance commercial, but I do think there are  a lot of people who walk a different path and do not try to be the best people they can be. Let them slide, find your center, and press for a way.

I feel a little like a politician as I wrote a lot but did not say as much as I should, so how about we just say that each and every person has the ability to lead a good life, and they should, no matter what.

So as the sun sets on another day, reach for the stars, learn everything you can, live a life that is both good and good hearted, and in the end, you will be happy with your choices. Dot stop unless it is to smell the roses...

Sleep sweet, love life, and love some more...

The sun sets on another day...

After walking through thousands and thousand s of people today and seeing the happy faces enjoying each other, local vendors, food, fun, candy and more I agree quite a bit with Barbara Streisand when she sung this song:

People

People who need people
Are the luckiest people in the world,
We're children, needing other children
And yet letting our grown-up pride
Hide all the need inside, 
Acting more like children
Than children...

Of course there is more to the song, and it is a good song, but this is telling. Isn't it better to be together than apart?

If you were with people today I hope you had a great day, and if not, I hope you had a great day as well.

Sleep sweet, love life, and live it, like it is the most important thing in the world...

The sun sets on another day...

So does the moon, and the stars wander for all time on their axis depending on us.

I had written a long post about truth and living a life of truth, and will end up positing it another day. Today it is only fitting that I suggest family is one of the more important things in our lives. I have heard many discount family, set it aside, move in favor of other avenues instead of family, but as the sun and moon are in our sky so too must a child an parent be in their lives for all time. We cannot easily set aside the idea of being independent, but we cannot set aside our dependence either. A father and child or a mother and child are locked in a matrix until the moment the child becomes the father (or mother) and the cycle continues. 

I know I can always count on my children, and I hope they know they can count on me as I try to show them each and every day in some small way.

So as the sun sets on another day consider your family, brothers and sisters, fathers and sons, daughters and mothers, and all the plethora of people who will be there for you, no matter what. Remember that often friends can be as close as family, and then they should be treated as such, but that is very rare. Be thankful when it is there, and include them to make your family strong.

Sleep sweet, enjoy your day, and Happy Birthday my son...
