I don’t know what the meaning of life is.

I am grateful to be alive.

I try to live my life….to be a person I can live with…to be happy with….to be respectful of others.  Sometimes, I fail….but then…I try to forgive myself and try again to do the right thing.  What’s important to me….is what I think of myself.  I think my parents gave me a good foundation….my early teachings from my first Buddhist minister stays with me.  He was very loving and kind to all persons…all religions….His teachings from before I was 9 have stayed with me all my life…and I am no 85….and will be 86 in a few days.
