Gratitude quotes

18.   “The most interesting people I know drink in life and savor every drop-the sweet and the sour. The good and the bad. The planned and the unplanned… Right in the midst of what seems to me to be a detour from the map, I’m often gifted with something precious and unforgettable.

Always, it’s an adventure I keep learning to welcome with a full and grateful heart.” – Luci Swindoll
