Grateful for each breath this 2019!


Grateful for each breath

The phrase “Take a deep breath” is misleading. 
The breath isn’t something we can just “take.”

Breathing is a gift, a miracle, offered to us over and over again, yet much like our breath, we often take it for granted right up until the moment we no longer have it. Let’s accept this gift with gratitude and appreciation as we would all presents, by saying, “Thank you.”
Sometimes society can seem disgruntled and ungrateful, and the world may appear to no longer be appreciative, but some of its people still are, and therein lies the promise.

So go ahead … accept a few breaths with your eyes closed and a smile on your face.

What a joy it is to be alive! 
Being content makes poor people rich;
Discontentment makes rich men poor. – Benjamin Franklin
