“There are great blessings that come from times of poverty and hardship.
Learning the value of little things, the immense happiness that comes from the smallest kindness; the precious worth of a smile, a warm meal, shelter, interaction, the feeling of being wanted, loved..
Hardship offers us the chance to truly understand the things that truly matter in this life.
When we hold still long enough to see the gifts in our adversity we drop the added shackles we’ve attached to it.
We become lighter, more compassionate and wise. Gratitude becomes our dear companion who holds us up and helps us see the edge of light in every shadow.” ~ Lynika Cruz
