What is given is a gift, even the most difficult experiences and circumstances - which can be wake-up calls.

Saying thank you every day will create feelings of love, compassion, and hope. Giving thanks makes us happier and more resilient, strengthens our relationships and reduces our stress. When we give thanks, we feel more connected to the flow of life, and less alone in our struggles and fears. $15.95 available at www.vivaeditions.com.
