First life gives, later it starts taking things away from you. Where are you on this curve?

When we are young there are so many gifts that are given to us. Skills, friends, education, career, health, etc., in fact there are countless examples of it. Then once we pass the fulcrum of this uphill curve life seems to start taking things away from us.
Just this past Tuesday yet another good friend vanished due to cancer. Sure, there are still many new gifts that keep coming our way, but there are equally more people and other things important to us that are whisked away. Take health for instance (I need reading glasses now, really?) and it will not take all that long, at the rate of speed we are going, that the kids will eventually move on.
How about you? Where are you on this curve? Thank this curve phenomenon that we adults get to appreciate what we have with every day that we are allowed to keep what has been given to us. Also, growing older lets us take fewer risks – it’s the tool helping avoid things taken away from us. Point of all of today’s post is to appreciate life to its fullest and to fill it with meaning. You never know if your life is the next thing that is about to disappear.
