We are all so blessed. Blessed in ways beyond measure and comparison. The gift of life, love, health, prosperity, the pursuit of happiness, family, and friends are just some of our blessings. At times we forget (or take for granted) just how blessed we are. We may block blessings with our bemoaning and complaining. The better thing to do is take action to make things better.
As author and spiritual activist Marianne Williamson states, "We should complain less and bless more." If we're in a position to bless someone, especially those who may be less fortunate, we should do it selflessly. And we shouldn't reserve these acts for only a season. We should strive to commit ourselves to these acts every chance we get. That way the season of kindness, caring, giving, and blessings extends throughout the year. This will be one of my goals moving into 2013 and beyond.
I hope and pray that you and yours have a wonderful, happy, and safe holiday season! Be grateful. Be thankful. Be encouraged. Enjoy!
Peace, Love, and Many Blessings,
