"Here's to you kid"

As I sit here, writing this letter, summer close to an end, 26 years of life slowly creeping up on me, I am reminded that this day in history Gandhi began one of his famous hunger strikes to protest the British Government because they separated India's electoral votes into a caste system. Or that yesterday marked the 50th anniversary of the Birmingham Alabama church bombing that killed four girls. 

This time of year has always been one that causes me to reflect internally. Life, you may not have been without challenges but you have always been beautiful and for that I thank you. This week I vow to put in practice some of the life lessons you have taught me. I shall

 Help a stranger in need
 Choose to see the good in all
  Make the weekend one to remember ( more to come. Praying it all works out)
 Take advantage of every opportunity given to me
 Take a moment to stop in marvel at your beauty. 

So life, consider this not only my letter to you but my promises. "Here's to you kid."
