To the editor:
So many times as we go through life we ask ourselves these questions. The answers don’t come easy but they do make plenty of sense. Living our life we face many changes in it. Some we feel good about, some we don’t agree, and then there are those we can’t accept.
Let us discuss the first one – Could I? I’ve often asked myself if I could have changed anything in my life other than what I do – could I? Most people like what they do but there are some who say they would change. Could I help people to be able to evaluate their life – yes if it were possible. For me, if I wanted to change my life I would truthfully say I could see myself working in the medical field. These people do a fantastic job in helping save lives. If I had chosen this kind of work I know I could be truly dedicated to helping others.
What I do could be a kind of helping others. Being a mother most of my life has given me the satisfaction of a lifetime. Could I even begin to regret what I do in life – never. Simply because God placed these children in my care. He trusted me enough to do this and I could never thank Him enough.
Would I? It comes with a lot of intelligent and honest questions as well as answers. If someone would ask you to do something would you answer right away or would you use good common sense and think about it. There are some things I would like to change so people could have a better life. All people need to be treated equal. I would do my best to make it a goal of mine. Too, I would let people know that the one person they need on their team is God. Helping people know and believe in Him, that He is always there and never forsakes us and I would make it be my deepest desire to get this done. In order to do good things I would definitely want to be a better witness for God. America would be a better nation with Him in it and I know I would and will do what I can to help our country.
Then we come to my last question; Should I? Should I always show kindness and be considerate to all people as well as to their opinions and have them feel the same about me? Should I be willing to make the best of what life has to offer me? No one should take life for granted because life is too short.
Sometimes we will have small and at times we will have big obstacles that will come our way. Should I face them head on and conquer them or should I just don’t try and let them destroy me. I know that there are some people who say things that are hurtful and cause bad feelings between them. Should they let their ego take over or should they ask for forgiveness and hope that they would do the same for us. I used to ask God what would He do, but now I do what I know God would do and that is to show forgiveness. Could America start back on the right track? Could Americans rebuild their lives? Yes, they can. Serving God could bring your life back to reality, in other words where it needs to be.
Could I? Would I? Should I? are three of the most important steps to make your life happy.
This article is different from some that I have written. Somehow my heart led me to write about questions that we can all answer truthfully and will make a big difference in our lives.
My prayer for everyone is do the best that you can to live a happy and healthy life. Also to my readers, if you like my articles tell someone about them. If I can ever make one more person happy, then I feel truly blessed.
