“Sometimes I ne…
“Sometimes I need only to stand wherever I am to be blessed.”
Have you ever noticed that sometimes the things that are staring at you — right in front of your face — are the very same things that you often miss completely? Well, as I was throwing myself a little pity party this morning, I happened to look on my desk and see the above quote I’ve had there for quite sometime but had not noticed…in quite sometime. So often the spirit is willing, but the flesh is so very weak.
Well, TODAY, wherever we are, may we wake up to what’s around us, pause, look carefully, and give thanks…for the simple, spectacular blessings of today.
Here’s a smattering of mine:
fresh banana bread
singing “Holy, Holy, Holy,” an oldie, but goodie at church
children’s prayers – blatant honesty and purity
deep laughter from the belly
the healing scar on mama’s hip
sweetness of fruit
salad-making with mama
Costco’s aisles and yes, even the frigid produce cooler!
hot, cleansing tears
feeling that you are loved unconditionally
warm cup of evening green tea with a little smidgeon of lemon
the word “smidgeon”
lotion to soothe dry, winter-cracked hands
hope of tomorrow
What have been some of the magnificent, “little” blessings you’ve experienced today?
