Amal Alhaag and Maria Guggenbichler present: Radio Count Your Blessings
“Some of us bake wonderfully, write, paint, do any number of things, have facilities with numbers that others don’t have. Those are your blessings. Some of us are very strong and candid and some of us are nurturers or combinations of all of those things. Just be aware of what your particular things are and nurture them and use them toward a positive way of living. That’s simply what I meant.”— Essex Hemphill
