being grateful should be just like breathing; done naturally and without having to think about it.
showing kindness should be like riding a bicycle; a person never forgets how to do it... we always remember how.
loving somebody should be like sitting in our favorite chair; usually feels so wonderful and may require a few minor adjustments once in a while.
life should not be so much of an easy ride, because if that were the case; we would never learn the skills necessary to deal with all the bumps we will encounter.
friendship should be like a summer's day; wonderful and fun and not always the most comfortable feeling, but yet the sun always shines.
