1. "Count your garden by the flowers,
    Never by the leaves that fall.
    Count your days by golden hours,
    Don’t remember clouds at all…
    Count your nights by stars, not shadows,
    Count your life with smiles, not tears.
    And all throughout your lifetime,
    Count your age by friends, not years."

  8. This is my new favorite song & music video. My mom heard it on the radio and called me crying tears of joy because it reminded her of us :). 

    I hope you ♥ it too and are encouraged to PRAY.
