Chapter 9, Page 5, Book 17


Cherish what you have because not all people are blessed with the things that you are enjoying.

Faith Starr 

Cherish the small things. They will be what fills your heart.

All that is worth cherishing begins in the heart. 

Suzanne Chapin

CHERISH

 to hold dear :  feel or show affection for 
 to keep or cultivate with care and affection :  nurture 

Lots of people and even some things in my life are cherishable. I intend to regard them as such. Very Cherished!

I’ve learned to always look at what you have, instead of what you have lost.  Because it’s not what the world takes away from you that counts; it’s what you do with what you have left.

There are blessings hidden in every struggle you face, but you have to be willing to open your heart and mind to see them.

And regardless of what happens in the long run, remember that real happiness begins to arrive only when you stop complaining about your problems and you start being grateful for all the problems you don’t have.


Time is a companion that goes with us on a journey. It reminds us to cherish each moment, because it will never come again. What we leave behind is not as important as how we have lived.

So true that real happiness comes when you are thankful for the problems you don't have. I cherish my alone time, fills me up to deal with other things.

My goodness, what I take for granted!
In light of Hurricane Harvey's devastation, these words certainly resonate.

I learned that my dad was right when he said, enjoy the hard climb, the view from the top is worth it. As we climbed the hundreds of mountains on the AT, I learned he was right. The view (or the success) was worth the effort.
