Today people think about many things, but for me, today I know I am blessed beyond belief. Keeping perspective and knowing this is so important as well as knowing how far my want stretches beyond the need of others.
Every night I am blessed to lay my head on a pillow. So many, albeit the orphan or the homeless find rest where they are able.
Every day I am blessed to satisfy the pangs of hunger. While thousands hold signs on a corner, stand in line at a shelter or wander and wonder for their next meal.
Every day I am blessed with the luxury of technology. In the use of this computer, my phone or driving my car, I take for granted this convenience.
Every day I am blessed to enjoy my family. During the holidays, many are separated from their loved ones by serving our country, conflicts in the home or because of unfortunate loss. Today, I am blessed!
Every day I am blessed with freedom. My freedom, though at a costly price, affords me the ability to pray, to celebrate the birth of our Savior, to play, to live and to love.
I see so much of the world ungrateful and unrealistically discontent with where they are in life. It can dish out some of the most difficult blows. I for one can attest to such, but the option is mine (ours) to decided how we see our cup. Half full? Half empty?
I am choosing full. It may only be half full, but full it is.
