“A happy family is an earlier heaven” Never forget to say thank you in life...even if at times you don’t know or have a greater understanding of why you should be grateful...life’s real gifts don’t come at any particular holiday or occasion and it’s so much easier to understand context when looking back on those “everyday moments” that later become cherished memories ... so in the moment remember to say thank you to the various people that impact your life. Thank you friends, thank you mom, thank you dad, thank you God, thank you life, thank you love...even thank you, time. Nothing is guaranteed, but a lot is often taken for granted without you even knowing... Photo by: @bartabz
