Blessed are you

 when you are...

Keeping a smile on your face when inside you feel like dying, for the sake of supporting others...because that's Strength

Standing for what you believe in regardless of the odds against you, and the pressure that tears at your resistance...because that's Courage

Doing more than is expected, to make another's life a little more bearable without uttering a single complaint...because that's Compassion

Stopping at nothing and doing what's in your heart that you know is right...because that's Determination

Holding your head hight and being the best you know you can be when life seems to fall apart at your feet...because that's Fortitude

Helping a friend in need, no matter the time or effort, to the best of your ability...because that's Loyalty

Facing each difficulty with thoughts that time wil bring you better tomorrows. And never giving up...because that's Confidence
