Giving Thanks – Day 18

I give thanks to one of the best pieces of advice I’ve ever heard.  My mother told me that after my grandfather died, he wanted to let me know that…

“one of the best traits you can ever achieve…is perserverance”

That piece of advice has gotten me through many hard and difficult times in my life (including his passing). It has allowed me to continue my education, to work through bouts of depression, and given me the strength to endure many different hardships which have occurred in the past few years.

Love you and miss you, Grandpa! 🙂  The following scene reminds me so much of you.
