Your article truly hit home for me too. I love all the comments your readers posted. One said a life half lived. Did I squander my life away? It feels like it somedays yet life is still evolving around me. I never thought I'd stumble on your article or meet strangers who talk openly from their heart. Your voices strengthen me to my core. I know by God I made some poor choices over my lifetime and I realize if I hang in there I am grateful for my life too. One thing my mother said to me after a horrendous event happened to me as I just turned 18 and I am 65 she said "just pray". I pray, I meditate, I look at the tumbleweeds blowing in my yard and know everything happens for a reason. You touched my heart with your words. Bless you. Thank you.
