What reason do I need to celebrate life?  A birthday, a wedding anniversary, or a holiday are all reminders that there is something to celebrate.  Yet every day can be a celebration of life.  I celebrate life by praising God.  Praise can be a quiet time of communion with God or a joyous hymn of thanksgiving to God.  I celebrate by recognizing the life of God within others.  We are all unique expressions of God's creativity, and I treat others with all the honor that I would great masterpieces, for indeed we are.  I rejoice in every expression of life I perceive.  The song of a bird, the beauty of a mountain, the fragrance of a flower, the softness of a kitten's fur all give me reasons to celebrate life.      -unattributed
