Nothing happens by accident. If one day we wake up and find
on our bed a beautifully wrapped present with delicate bows, we would

Maybe we would find something that we do not like very much...then we

May we have a day full of
blessings, in which we can feel the loving presence of our Creator, and
may the present of every day bring us peace, spiritual growth, and
enlightenment on all we still have to learn about every day, and the plan
life has for us, every day.....
