For me, every hour is grace. And I feel gratitude in my heart each time I can meet someone and look at his or her smile.
~Elie Wiesel, Romanian-born Jewish writer, political activist, author of Night, and a Holocaust survivor
The wisdom that we get from the wisest members of society rests on its simplicity. With Elie Wiesel, a survivor of the horrors of the Holocaust, this wisdom came to him and then through him from a period that would challenge even the strongest of men and women. From a man like this, we learn to value the moments of our lives in the ordinary and embrace the simple beauty that those meaningful moments deliver. As we prepare to share the festivities of the holiday season, keep in mind that this time together is in fact a gift that will never be repeated the same way again. As we share in the breaking of bread with our loved ones, let us allow grace to bless us through the sharing of our rich stories of the past and present, which will affect our future. We must witness the animated conversations and loving smiles shared that expand our souls even more. Let us continue to be extremely grateful to all, engaging in a warm embrace, reaching out of our comfort zone, and being vulnerable with our heart and soul. If we simply live, starting with a smile, we are well on the way to being open to a more satisfying existence. Through our loving actions and positive insights, we begin to allow the universe to mirror our behavior back to us. And then what would have been ordinary will magically transform, blessed by a moment of grace, into the extraordinary.
Magical Key to Bliss: Feel gratitude for each moment of grace!
