What a grand and glorious day. Merry Christmas to all. I am so blessed:
To be surrounded by a loving family and good friends.
To have a warm home and plenty of food.
To have the wisdom that comes with age.
To be healthy and strong.
To work in a field where I can make a difference in peoples' lives.
To live in a country that is free.
To live in a community where folks care about each other.
To have all my families' needs supplied.
To have the means to help others.
To look forward to each day, and whatever it might bring,
because my Lord Jesus was born on this day.
There is so much to be thankful for, on this and on every day. But, today, especially, I am reflecting on the simple things. I am pausing to be thankful and grateful, and will appreciate all I have been given and all the beauty that surrounds me.
