Hope life has been good to you.

Facebook.  Probably all of us or at least most of us are familiar with the internet wonder modeled after MySpace (but way better!!) that helps us to reconnect with old high school pals, friends, church members, or helps us to stay in touch with those we're still close to.  

I received a friend request today from someone & I didn't recognize the name & the profile photo was not a straight on shot to at least help me try to remember a face, so before I accepted the friend request, I wrote a quick message pretty much saying, 'Who the heck are you & do I know you?'.  

The guy was nice enough to write back & shot off some other names of people he ran around with & he mentioned I was a cheerleader & was his life long crush (just kidding on that part), but that he was pretty sure he knew who I was. So, come to find out, yeah, he knew me, but I still couldn't quite remember him, so I gave him a link to our family blog just because I love to show off my family & I ended the reply message with "and I hope life has been good to you," to which he reiterated the same thing to me when he replied & then it hit me.  

Why do we say that?  Shouldn't it be more like, "I hope you've been good to your life," instead of "I hope life has been good to you,"?  Because what does "life" have to do with it?  Isn't it what we do with our life or how we react to what happens to us in our life?  

So, take a moment & think about it, "Have you been good to your life?"
