My sister sent me a link to a beautiful song (Watch the video below) but it served to remind me to count my blessings. Especially at this time of year.
The Christmas Shoes: New Song
I am so very blessed! We get so busy shopping, wrapping, visiting, eating, running around to pageants and concerts, complaining about spending and lineups, baking, decorating, partying etc. etc.
- My husband and my 3 children – they are healthy and happy – we are lucky to have a home and plenty to eat and happiness and love all around.
- My Mom and Dad and sisters and brother – so many beautiful memories of this time of year – we were truly blessed growing up. I am so lucky that we are still part of each other’s lives.
- My Gramma – I have lost other grandparents and miss them so much. I forget to spend time with my Gramma. I am blessed to have her here with us.
- My friends, especially my best friend. I am so lucky to have people that I can lean on, laugh with, cry with, and celebrate life with.
These are just some that I am thinking about today. I am counting my blessings more and more every day.
What are your blessings? Do you find yourself thinking of them at this time of year? Make time in the hustle and bustle to count them today! 🙂
