    Note: Take nobody or nothing for granted (never fail to appreciate anyone or anything) come what may. I mean, do accept or tolerate all (everyone or everything) with patience, hopefulness and gratitude. Because, nobody or nothing lives or lasts forever. Oh! yes, not even the good times, nor the bad times. Besides that, once you are grateful for all (everything and everyone), your life per se will automatically become less stressful, less worrisome, delightful, healthful and enviable eventually. You can take my words for it. ~Emeasoba George
