Sometimes I may not express my gratitude out loud,

but I am still grateful for my blessings. Yesterday, I

should've died and yet I am alive today to say I love

you, Jesus. Yesterday, I should've died and yet I am

alive today to see another sunrise and to give a

portion of myself to those who may be in need. I

love my family and friends. All thanks is due on to

God who blesses us with more time to spend together.

A simple hello, joke, hug or compliment makes everyday to

be worth living for me. Covered in Jesus' blood, I know

that an angel must be watching over me somewhere.

Today is Christmas and God has blessed me with

another miracle in which is my son, Brendan Girardi.
