So, where to look for the blessings? I know they are there. Most days I don't have to look for them. But I think sometimes, many times, we need too. I think we get complacent and just expect them to be there.
Over the last few years, I've learned to look for them. Not just to expect them. Sometimes, it's the phone call to a friend that will let you vent and share your stresses . .
Sometimes, they are in the unexpected little rose . . .
Sometimes, it's in the unexpected garden visitors . . .
Can you see the cicada on the tall stem?
Sometimes, it's in the project I'm working on . . .
Sometimes, it's just in having the modern conveniences . . .
They are always there: the song on the radio, a Bible verse, the quiet, the hug from your child, the thank you note in the mail, the calm after the storm. I've been looking all week. As I said, it's been a rough week, a rough summer, a rough year. Yeah, pretty much all of it.
Look for them, you'll find them.
I am, I have, I will continue to look for them. I don't take my blessings for granted. There is nothing that says they are guaranteed, a given. Look for them, there's a blessing in the search, too.
Thank you for stopping by...
Wishing you a creative weekend.
