What is the meaning of life?

Life is something that was given to me & everybody else on this earth.  I think it is up to each & every individual to do & use their life as they wish.  I hope I have lived my life with grace & thankfulness with all I was blessed!  I feel very fortunate & lucky to have been able to accomplish some of my dreams & have a wonderful family who have gone on to do great things.  I feel like I’m one of the luckiest people in the world.  I have the greatest family anybody could ever had & I have all the money I need to have to live the rest of my life in ease!  I might not live much longer as I am 85, but still very active.  My family keeps me young.

Nobody appreciates life anymore than me.  As I think I’m one of the luckiest people on this earth.
