Life is overrated.
We know death comes sooner or later.
That's actuality the only thing we know about life.
Eternity is underrated.
How and where to spend it.
We have a choice, what a frightful gift.

The value of health is so underrated.
"Well, I don't care, as long as I have my health,
How often have I not heard people say that.
As if health is a human privilege, not even worth valuing.
"I am modest, I only crave my good health"...
"I don't care if it's a boy or a girl, as long as it's healthy."
And what do you do if it's not?
Return it as damaged goods?

The Bible strongly warn us against making vows.
Our politician do nothing but shower us with promises.
"I promise to love you all of my life."
How do you know if you can keep such an immense vow?

I have promised never to send my mother to a retirement home of any kind.
Now she wants to move of her own free will. She even filled out the application form herself.
Nevertheless I feel like a betrayer.
I've fought so hard for so long. Nine years have passed since the struggle started.
Never ever give any pledges.
Vows are definitely overrated.

Ecclesiastes 12:8 Vanity of vanities, saith Koheleth; all is vanity.
