"Wrinkles merely indicate where smiles have been."
~ Mark Twain ~

My car has 208,000 miles on it, and in some ways, it is a bit worse for wear. The back window is stuck part way down and has to be taped, the electronic displays are missing bars and can't be read; the ceiling is peeling, and there are a few leaks I have to keep an eye on. But by and large, it steadies on, and is a comfortable, smooth ride down the road.
     I celebrate the endurance of my car. It has held up through thick and thin. And if we think about it in the right way, aren't our bodies a bit like that as well?

I acknowledge and appreciate all of the storms I've survived.
