A young friend asked me the other evening, "Sue, what do you think our purpose is here on Earth?" Well, wowza! Nobody ever asked me that before. My first instinct was to say, Geez, how would I know? But I reconsidered because I know this young friend admires me and apparently, she thinks I know stuff. So I gave it my best consideration.
Here is what I told her.
I think we are here to have fun.
I think we are here to love our families.
We should learn from our mistakes and try to better ourselves.
We need to take care of ourselves and others.
We need to learn as much as we can during the time we are given here.
I didn't even have to think about it much. It just came out-- one thing after the other. Who knew??
