Remember the Gift

“Awoke feeling very grateful to God for my life, my family, and my friends.”

This was a post from this week in 2013, after surgery to deal with the fluid the lymphoma had trapped around my heart. I was in pain, but pain meant I was still here. Every day since is a gift of grace for which I’m so grateful.

Before you expend your energy in frustration at people who don’t behave the way you want, and in bitterness for circumstances you have little or no control over, remember the gift today is. Spend your moments well.
