Every day is a time to celebrate those you love, especially the ones who cared for you, loved you and raised you to become such a wonderful person. It does not take much to show appreciation to others, but if you based it on all they did for you, I am sure the reward would be great.
For some that support system is no longer in place by those wonderful people, but you are now the support system to others. No matter how strong we think we are, no man (or woman) is an island; we need each other. Give your best, press through the test whatever it may be and rejoice in the good or rough times that will come your way. When you need that extra boost, it is good to have a true friend that will stand with you and if you do not have one, you have a friend in Jesus. He will take great care of you and send you what you need, when you need. Oh, how good it is too beloved. Oh, how good it is to share love.
Stay connected to God and let His love flow through you to others in a mighty way. If you ever feel lonely or think no one cares, volunteer your time to help someone else. Just to reflex on all the goodness in your life, count your many blessings, name them one by one. Count your many blessings and see what God has done.
Gratitude is the right attitude that will take you into a realm greater than you ever believed.
