“Everyone’s situation is different, and the details of each life are unique. Nevertheless, I have learned that there is something that would take away the bitterness that may come into our lives. There is one thing we can do to make life sweeter, more joyful, even glorious.

We all experience difficulties and pain and suffering in different ways and at different times in our lives, but we can be grateful even during those experiences.
