WHEN ALL IS SAID AND DONE

I haven't blogged lately. Obviously l have a lot to say.But the greatest lesson l have been learning lately is that life is a gift. Another beautiful thing l am learning is to be grateful for what l have.

I have also been learning to be grateful for the country l live in-Kenya.We complain so much that sometimes in the fullness of negativity, the good that God has given us is forgotten. How sad. How very sad.

Gifts such as healthy lives and relationships should not be taken for granted. When all is said and done, that is truly what matters.

Today, l was reading something by Rev Rick Warren about life. He says that he has been to many a bedside of people who lay dying.None of them ever said, "Bring me my diplomas! I want to look at them one more time!"

If you ask me, l think that is truly profound.Just a thought, as you go on with your life.

Mos def. Having a grateful attitude will make light of what would otherwise be a horrific situation. There is something we can be grateful for in every situation! btw, you have an interesting blog.
