For the Hard Days

“Too often,” [Bear Hayes] said, “we lose sight of just how much we have to be grateful for. And we must be grateful for our hardships. We must be more thankful for the hard days than we are for the days that are not as difficult. We should feel more gratitude since the hard days are our opportunities.”

    I agree, great post.

    • Thank you, Rosie. The book is about the former Dean of the Notre Dame Law School who retired and became a priest doing prison ministry. I’ve learned a lot from this book already.
