A grateful heart

“When life is sweet, say thank you and celebrate. And when life is bitter, say thank you and grow.”

— Shauna Niequist

We went to a memorial service this afternoon in memory of a dear friend of some of my friends. I didn’t know the person but one could sense that he would be greatly missed. The memorial was how you would want your friends and loved ones to remember you. Everyone spoke fondly of the deceased – he was a good husband, a great father to a son, a devoted grandfather, a beloved brother of a sister, and plenty of friends who all paid their last respect and say their goodbyes (he passed away in another state).

Above quote was at the end of the program.
