. . . . . struggling with a multitude of issues, one thing you may want to do is to squirrel yourself away, by yourself, for just a few hours and write down all the things you already have in your life.
For example, do you have a roof over your head – millions do not; do you have your health – millions do not; do you have the opportunity to live in a free society where you can learn or do what you want to educate yourself for a new career – millions do not; do you have friends and family that love you – millions do not.
I think you will find that you have more to be grateful for than you realize.
The secret is to always count your blessings; it truly does make life easier.
This past year has been a challenging one for our family – we have seen challenging times, we had some very dark times and hopeless times, and of course we have had happy times.
But no matter what was happening I always counted my blessings and looked for the good in the situation.
And as difficult as it was in some situations there was good. I can think of a couple of occasions where it was very difficult to even think that there was any good, but it was there.
My Wish For You
May you see and be thankful for all the blessings you have and may many more come your way. And may you experience the blessing that life has to offer when you find the good in every situation.
