"We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures."
There are days that go by when we wonder why on earth things happen the way that they do. Then there are other days when everything is normal. Nothing grand, nothing too bland. Then there are days like today. Days when you think about your life. All that you've been given, all that you've desired and hasn't been a part of your life, and all the gifts that you've been given without a thought prior of how much you might want them. Things that are so great and you never even imagined could be part of your life. Today is one of those days for me. A day when I think about my life and I am amazed that it is my own; that I am the one who gets to live it. I am blessed and today I have the perspective to see just how blessed I am. A perspective of gratitude goes a long way.
