I’ve been asked the question before and the answer changes according to my age.
“What is the greatest gift you’ve received?”
Age 5: The doll I wanted
Age 15: GoGo Boots
Age 25: Son
Age 27: Daughter
Age 36: A bachelor’s degree
Age 46: Enlightenment
Age 54: The perfect part-time job
Age 63: Holding my first published book in my hands
Age 67: My first office with a window
Age 69: Doing a yoga headstand and carrying a gallon of milk with my pinkie finger.
Health, it seems, is the greatest gift. For without it nothing else is possible.
