to be alive.

to laugh and cry.
to dance and sigh.
to run and jump.
to think and reason.
to watch and listen.
to be alive.
 I walked through a small path that continued on through the countryside like a silk ribbon, I watched the sun slip through leaves, splash joy on my blonde hair.  I listened to the crisp crunch of leaves underfoot.  I felt a chill run through me when I realized how blessed I am just to be alive.  To be able to solve a math problem.  And to run through woods.  And to laugh hard.  And to be thankful.  Oh, I yearn to be fully alive... to not just barely survive being alive, but to be fully aware of our surroundings and how God has blessed us.
