Tonight my Aunt Fay asked me if I was looking forward to going to Paris this coming summer. I told her that I'm too unsure and nervous to be excited about it. This is what she had to say to that:
A blessing is a free gift, so there's no need to be anxious about it when it comes your way. What are you going to do, turn it down? Sometimes it's hard for us to recognize and accept blessings because we don't feel like we deserve it, but obviously it must have been meant for you if it came to you in the first place. You can't do anything to earn a blessing, but what you can do is be grateful and thankful, and show God that you're grateful and thankful.
