Childrens Orphanage

Today was one of those days that you bow your head in gratitude and thank god for all of the wonderful blessings that he has given to you. I got to go to the childrens orphanage today. I'm bac in the south in Nakkon si Thammarat. We didn't do much while we were there. The children that were old enough were at school so the majority of the children were away. It was only the toddlers or the ones younger than age 4. We had bought some treats with us so we passed them out and helped the little ones eat their cupcakes. It was nothing really spectacular but I did feel very blessed to live with my wonderful family and have 2 wonderful parents that have raised me in the gospel that inspire hope and motivation in my soul. These children were beautiful but many of the toddlers were sick and the didn't look happy. One of the girls was crying the whole time. She couldn't have been more than 2 years old. Evidently she was new to the orphanage.

God gives all of us challenges in life but none too great to bear with our Savior Jesus Christ. There are always going to be tradgedies we never find or know because we haven't experienced them. But always have a gratified heart for the life you have been given.Yesterday was history, tomorrow is mystery, but today is a gift. That's why they call it the present. Christ gives us hope and the power to change to the good we desire in life. Life is a precious gift so take advantage of every moment. Blame is an empty game for opportunities never taken. There are always those that will have more and those that will have less. Happiness is a perspective and its up to you to attain it.
