The Good Things in Life

Life has been crazy these past couple years.  Between my adventures in Africa and AmeriCorps, work up at Ft. Campbell as a Wildfire Suppression Technician and the opportunity to head out on another adventure with the inaugural class of AmeriCorps*NCCC FEMA Corps in the coming month, there has been little or no time to be able to sit back and relax. 

For the past couple days and the rest of the week, I have taken off from work and headed down to Edisto Island to spend time with family, including my one year old niece and nephew.  It has been great to be able to relax, ride the waves in on sit-on-top kayaks and play with the little ones. 

This is what life is about.  Our society tells us to seek out money, a relationship, a stable work environment, but no matter how much you have, you will never be able to buy happiness.  After we seek out and gain everything, we will still find ourselves empty of all that makes us happy. 

Watching my brother, sister, her in-laws and my grandparents enjoy themselves on the beach and playing with the little ones strengthens my faith in Gods love.  This is love and nobody can take this away. 

These are the good things in life that make it worth living.  Times like these are what gives me the strength to dive into the next adventure and journey wherever God calls me. 

Just some ramblings of a happy uncle.  Time to go play with children.

God Bless and PEACE
