We should certainly count our blessings, but we should also make our blessings count.
When we give cheerfully and accept gratefully, everyone is blessed.
Happiness is always a choice. You can’t wait for circumstances to get better. You have to create your own good fortune. So look for ways to be happy every day.
…I was reminded that we don’t know when or where our time on Earth will end…
…I say all the time that every moment we have to live our life is a blessing. So often I have found myself taking it for granted. Every hug from a family member. Every laugh we share with friends. Even the times of solitude are all blessings. Every second of every day is a gift…
…I know I truly understand how blessed I am for each second I am given.
Jessica Ghawi (1987-2012)
Sadly, Jessica was killed during the Dark Knight shooting. She wrote these words a month earlier, after experiencing another shooting in Toronto. Her words resonate with a passion for life and should be remembered as a constant reminder to appreciate every day and to always respect and be kind to others.
