Sunrise to Sunset

My meaning to life

Every morning the sun comes up.

I feel honoured to be able to have a wonderful place to witness the beauty of each new day.

However with each new day comes the barricades and roadblocks that will be put in front of me to challenge how I will get to be in a position to see it’s wonderful completion.

Be sure, each day will present its hurdles.

But each hurdle comes with various methods in which we may use to overcome it.

We may choose to

1: leap over it

2: step around it

3: go under it

Some we are able to do ourselves. However usually they require the help of someone else if not many.

Sue and I have been asked to talk about how we deal with Parkinson’s, one of those hurdles.

Sue constantly says that she just ignores it. Nothing could be further from the truth.

For with each task that I now struggle with she assumes.

Every mundane task. Cleaning, laundry, cooking, minor repairs to the house. Her abundance of energy is an inspiration to behold while enabling me to bypass my hurdles at a pace of my choosing,

Without her my hurdles are certainly taller and wider.

Her strength and courage providing me with my own.

Over our 40 plus years together we have had a cast of thousands that have also provided us with the capabilities to pass the hurdles that have tested us to date. If you are reading this you are probably one of them.

It is not a God or a religion that has helped me to overcome these hurdles!

It is not a God or a religion that gets me from sunrise to sunset

My hurdles are passed and pushed aside by the power of many.

The Power of you!

But most of all the Power of


From Sun rise to Sun set!

And all that lies between

That’s my meaning of life!
