Do not keep this letter, rather,
Yes, I know this is but one day in this grief journey but it’s a day of Grace and Mercy, a gift from God and, just for today, I will cherish this gift, this today and be thankful. In time, there will be more such days but today, I’m choosing to live deliberately and just for today, be thankful to God for His love gifts to me.
