Thankful For The Little Things

Hey guys, it’s been awhile. The last few weeks have been an emotional roller coaster. I recently lost my niece. We sent here on a  mission sometimes for reasons unknown. But when we finish the mission God takes us home. I’ve had my good and bad days trying to understand why happened. Of the install of the knowing that she is no longer suffering and in the best place possible. She was only three years old but in those three years she lived a life that some people live in 90. Her mission was to bring happiness and laughter to our familes life. She definitely did that. My Eri blueberry as I called her and  She called me “Alfany” I miss hearing her little voice and seeing her precious smile.i’m grateful I got to be her aunt.

 I just wanted to write and say how important it is to be thankful for the small moments in life. We waste are time planning for the future, but in reality we know tomorrow is not  promised. We have to live in the moment and appreciate those small moments for what they are.  Before my niece died I had an audition to prepare for, but when she died u was hesitant to go. Then I realized she would want me to go. Life doesn’t stop. We must keep going. If we don’t take risk what’s the point of living? Losing her has made me realize that I have to keep living and continue being grateful for the breath I  have in my lungs appreciate this moment because sometimes that’s all we have. Tell your loved ones how much you love them and hug them a little tighter. Be thankful that you have them in your life.

Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving
