TO CONTRIBUTE OR NOT CONTRIBUTE TO LIFE?

3F3D178D-8AAB-4399-A727-09FD97E293DD

I know I’m not

REQUIRED to contribute,

but as I meander down

the winding path of LIFE,

I can’t help but wonder

if I have made a CONTRIBUTION.

LIFE has given me so much.

Have I given anything back?

It has been said that

“we make a life by what we give.”

I can’t help but wonder

what kind of LIFE I have made.

What have I GIVEN?

It’s also been said that

”the quality of your life is determined

by the quality of your CONTRIBUTION.”

I wonder what the quality of my life is.

Still another has said that

”the key to life is NOT accumulation,

it is CONTRIBUTION.”

I must admit it’s easy

to see what I have accumulated.

I have boxes and drawers full.

But it’s not so easy to see

what I have CONTRIBUTED.

As I continue to stroll

down the path of LIFE,

I can see that

there is an end to the path.

And I know I’m not required

to CONTRIBUTE to LIFE.

But I can’t help but wonder

if I have.

  1. Good morning from North Georgia, Dr. JoyFinder. I have been perusing your posts from Dr. JoyFinder this. morning and enjoying every tidbit of wisdom and beautiful image you have created. I admire your talent and your wisdom so much, Chuck. I am so sorry I have been MIA with my social media lately. I’m thankful, now that my big events are over, I will have time to do the things I enjoy. That is what Dr. JoyFinder would recommend –I know.

    We have had two days of rain up here but it’s supposed to be nice today. Thanks goodness! Tonight, the temperature drops into the twenties. BRRR!

    I hope you all are doing well. See you soon!

    Kathy
