“When I’m worried and I can’t sleep
I count my blessings instead of sheep
And I fall asleep counting my blessings…”
Irving Berlin wrote this song for the movie White Christmas. I loved it the first time I heard it and I love it still. It reminds me not to worry, and to be thankful.
At some point during the hustle and hurry of the holiday season, I like to take a quiet moment to think about how very blessed I am. Due to something tragic that happened to a friend yesterday, I am truly counting my abundant blessings this morning.
So often we get caught up in the craziness of our every day lives that we forget how very blessed, how truly fortunate we are for all that we have. I am often guilty of looking at things with a “grass is greener over there” eye. But today, especially today, I am grateful for every single nutty, crazy, challenging, wonderful, warm, loving person and thing in my life.
I’m thankful to all of you, as well. Your encouragement and continued support of my ramblings is a blessing to me.
Count Your Blessings and take some time just to enjoy those you love today.
She Who is Thankful
