“Thank you, God, for this good life and forgive us if we do not love it enough.” – Garrison Keillor
One of my favorite memories of the Minnesota State Fair is my parents coming out on Sunday after the 5k Milk Run, listening to music and having a beer or two with my friends. Yesterday was the first one without Dad, so we toasted the good memories and the good life we have even when it’s difficult.
True friends show up in the difficult times as well as for the toasts to honor people who remain with us even when they are gone.
Toast your life today and those who are in it right now. It is a good life. We need only open our eyes and see the light.
