It’s a beautiful day. Why? Because we were able to see another day. We are conscious, alert, and awake. Many of us who wake up in the morning rarely remember thanking God for every new day that comes to us. People seemed to drown with the tasks that they will face for the day not realizing that we are lucky we still see the beauty of the sun rise, the falling rain, hear the birds sing.
When we walk to the bathroom to attend to our personal needs, don’t we think we are lucky we can still walk? and relieve our bladder very spontaneously ? There are people who are sick on their beds and has tubes to help drain their bladder.
When we eat our breakfast, don’t we appreciate we can swallow so smoothly and savor the flavor of food? Some people are being fed through tubes and not tasting anything. When we open a bottle of sandwich spread, don’t we realize we are lucky we have that strength? Others aren’t as lucky. They are too weak for that.
Life is a gift. Let us cherish life. Live life always …with gratitude for its Giver.
