Everyday is a miracle…Sing through the pain…Smile though your heart is aching, smile even though it’s breaking, you’ll see that life is still worthwhile, if you just smile…Though actions speak louder than words, it still pays to verbalize emotions… Live life to the hilt…Listen with your heart, not just with your ears…Be grateful for every blessing…Your family is the greatest gift ever…In the face of adversities, a family is really held closer. And they stand by their promise of never letting each other go…Everything comes with a reason only known to our Mighty Creator.
