Growing up, if I was to identify one core value that my parents instilled in me, it would be to pay it forward. They were never financially abundant, but as the saying goes, “if there is a will, there is a way.” They gave to others through acts of service.
My parents were quick to lend a helping hand. When friends and family needed financial help, they did what they could to find the means to help. Unfortunately, sometimes to their detriment because they always gave above their means. They taught me that we are beyond blessed and whatever trials that we may be experiencing, it could be worst. To this day, there is not a day that goes by that I do not think about all the things that I am grateful of and the life I’ve been given. Of course I have my share of challenges, but I never overlook the miracles that show up in my life. I hope that you are able to easily identify the abundant blessings and miracles in your own lives too!
With Deep Gratitude,
