I'm so lucky

I can see.
And hear, and speak, and touch.
Every limb on my body is there. And functions exactly as it should.
I can eat wheat. I'm not allergic to peanuts. I tolerate lactose. I'm allergic to alcohol, but hey, that's not all that bad, considering the alternatives.
I *can* run.
I *can* ride a bike.
I live in a fantastic city with a strong recreational focus. There are walking tracks everywhere. There are bike tracks. There are biker-friendly paths through the city away from vehicular traffic. All of this is completely free.
I have a job. It pays well. I have what they call 'disposable income'. I can make choices as to what I purchase and why. I have access to quality products.
I have a husband who loves me. A dog who adores me. And a cat who tolerates me.
Is there anything more to life than these?
(This is not bragging. This is appreciating.)
