Hello friends, welcome from the Big House. Days feel like weeks, weeks like months, and in these many months felt like an unending eternity of destitution. And the most frustrating part was no matter how much I try, I just can not seem to make any progress. Courage does always roar, sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, I will try again tomorrow.If you work hard, give it time, and do not give up, things will always get better. Oftentimes our dreams lie in wait just a little further upstream… all we need is the courage to push beyond the river. Happiness is not getting what we want, but being satisfied with what we have. The way to be happy is to be grateful even with the smallest blessings we receive. God bless.
