A friend facebooked that she has an amazing life. And she does. She has a loving husband, amazing children that you can spend hours with and leave wanting to know more about them, she has a warm home and is surrounded by nature’s beauty.
I wonder how many people stop to take time to appreciate their blessings? Do they look in their child’s eye and look past the moments of frustration to the moments of wonder?
Do they notice the things their partner does for them that may go unnoticed in our busy lives? Do they say thank you?
I wonder how many people take our very existence for granted rather than realizing that every breath is a gift, every hug a treasure and every kiss a jewel?
I am blessed by God. I am fortunate to also have a charmed life, surrounded by my children, my spouse, my pets, my faith, my friends, my neighborhood, my family, my community. I count my blessings every day.
