The Everyday Blessings

Did you ever think about that dress you wanted to get but you just could not swing it this week or the house upgrades that you want to do, but short of charging your credit card till it maxed out, you were not able to afford it?  Those are the wants that in life we desire and make us say we are just not blessed despite helping others.  The reality of that statement is so untrue.

Daily we are blessed with just waking up, breathing air and opening our eyes.  There are days that we wake up feeling like we have not accomplished much of anything, but when we step back and look at what we have done and what we have around us, no matter how small it is, we realize, yes, we are blessed.  We may not feel that the blessing is exactly what we want in life (for some the big house, vacations, fancy cars, etc) but at the end of the day, looking at others around us in our own city, we are.  Think of the many that long to have a home and they can’t because they lost their job and they are just barely getting by.  Think of the parent that wants to have a baby, but infertility is in the way or if they do have a baby, the baby for some reason is born premature changing their lives forever.

Today, take a moment to reflect on your many blessings and share them with those around you.   A cup of tea or coffee goes a long way.
