25 Years in the Making…

1. My greatest realization: Blessings come with the responsibility to care for those less fortunate. Giving thanks is best exemplified by giving back.

3. My morning prayer: Please don’t let me forget why I’m here and please hold my hand as I face today’s challenges.

4. My nighttime prayer: Please watch over my family.

5. What I fear the most: Losing sight of the eternal journey and final destination.

6. Best gift I’ve ever received: A long, heartfelt, handwritten letter.

8. What I’ve left behind: Excessive materialism, finite rewards, the chase for more.

9. What I hope to gain: A greater understanding of the impending shift in our collective consciousness.
