It's time for our first 'Count Your Blessings' meme!
What really is a blessing? For me, it is a gift. It is a gift that is noticed and is appreciated. It is about being in touch...being connected.
Blessings come in many shapes and sizes. Some are ordinary. Others are extraordinary. It is all about us taking the time to receive them.
I must share my choice in the button for this meme. I will admit that I originally was looking for something spiritual. After looking through a few photos, I realized that a lot of us are always looking for answers when the most meaningful moments and answers are right before us. We just need to take the time to experience them.
That is when I came across this scene of two chairs by a body of water. I felt a sense of peace and serenity. To me, it represents reflection and sharing. Perfect for what we are trying to accomplish with 'Count Your Blessings'.
So what is my blessing that I wish to share with you today? It resembles the meme button above...I have the opportunity to admire and be amazed by God's work in nature on a daily basis...
I'm sitting here on the ground taking in every magnificent color, feeling the blades of grass upon my skin, hearing the birds in the tree above me, and smelling the fresh, warm air of spring.
For me, it's all about reflection, peace, and serenity. I am truly blessed. For this, I am thankful.
Now it is your turn...how do you feel blessed?
