Everyday Counts (Thankfulness)
Lately, I have felt so strongly about the fragility of life and the importance of “today.” Today (the right now) is all we are promised. Yesterday is gone. Yes, yesterday holds many beautiful and fond memories. Those memories are meant to be cherished in our hearts forever. However, we must let go of all of our hurts, disappointments and failures. The only thing we must take from them are lessons learned. How wonderful it would be, if each day that we live, we focused on our blessings. Blessings come in so many forms. It could be the smile on a child’s face, perfect weather, sharing laughter, etc…. I could go on and on, but I would be writing for a very long time! God created us as unique individuals and all that beautiful and good comes from Him. I truly believe that when we cultivate a thankful heart for each day that we live, our blessings become very clear. There’s just something about being thankful. It creates peace, joy and contentment. So, everyday let’s purpose in our hearts to be thankful for all that God has done and is doing in our life. Not only will we live more meaningful lives, I believe kindness and compassion for others (including our enemies) will naturally follow. Remember, sweet friends, the beauty of a new day because everyday counts!
