The Gift of Life


Give thanks each day for the gift of life …














Life is precious.

Life is short.

Life is a journey.

Life is a gift.

Slow down and think of your life, take a breath and look at the beauty around you, see the wonders of life and miracles happen. Live life consciously. Enjoy every moment.

Make wonderful moments into great memories.

Be thankful for this gift of life.
















Sometimes we need something to happen that we really notice about how precious our life is. I was really understanding it when I had a tumour in my head removed at the age of 21 and I was wheeled into the operating theatre. I knew I am in God’s hands whether I will wake up afterwards or not.  I had given to me the gift of life a second time.

Then I gave the gift of life to my two wonderful children and they were truly gifts to me, as I was told I could not have children. Miracles happen all the time.

These events made me certainly think about life. Even if you do not believe in God or a God, life is precious and you need to treat it that way and be thankful.












“When you arise in the morning, think of what a privilege it is to be alive – to breathe, to think, to enjoy and to love.” Marcus Aurelius Antonius.

We are surrounded by such unbelievable beauty. Life is enigmatic. Life is delicate. Life is painful. Life is inspiring. Life is love. Life is the tears we shed in joy and in sorrow. Life is magical. Life is the greatest gift! (Thomas Bergersen  – Illusions)


“God gave us the gift of life; it is up to us to give ourselves the gift of living well.”


Wishing you a wonderful, new, exciting day!
