As far as I know, no records are kept of the many blessings that befall us each day. There are not recorded in any newspaper nor made mention in the media. All too often we take for granted all we have and all the beauty and love that surrounds us.

The fact is we seldom stop to think about those persons who have helped us along our way and the contributions they have made to our lives.
