    There are many things one "lives for". On a purely personal level, I enjoy the relationship with my spouse, the taste and satisfaction of delicious and nutritious food, even a good sleep. Feeling good physically, having no (or at least, little) pain, tasting cold water to cool and refresh one's self, feeling clean after a shower, breathing the fresh outdoor air, feeling the warmth of the sun on one's skin, and relishing the brisk feeling of the cold of winter, and the beauty of God's nature in the growth of a tree, in a bush, or flower, as well as the amazing splendor of the glistening of snow crystals, the azure depth of a sky, or the grandeur of an auspicious sunrise or sunset.

    I was 6th of 8 children in my parents' family. I knew, and my wife (the 11th of 12th in her parents' family) knew we wanted to have as many children as we could have. We were able to have 9 children (of 15 pregnancies). The cost and care of so many has been a struggle. But with 9 grandchildren here, and the 10th on it's way, we are now reaping blessings of raising children.
