When you are in the middle of a mess, it’s easy to miss a LOT of important things.

Enjoy the story:


Mired in debt and fired recently, Tony decided to end his life. His suicide note was simply a list thanks and blessings. The note ran six pages long. That night, Tony read the note one last time and smiled. He realized it was silly for him to end his life.



1. A mini saga is a story told in exactly 50 words. Not 49 or 51 but exactly 50.

Oh, and the photo you chose to accompany the story is very striking. It caught my attention on its own.
