Blessed. We sometime take our blessings for granted. Last Monday I had neck surgery which has changed my life. I have always had pretty good health, but now I have limitations. I’m always aware of people with limitations or disabilities, but now it is me. I can’t lift more than 10 pounds, I can’t drive for 2 weeks, and I have to wear this silly neck brace for 6 weeks.
Oh poor me! What an inconvenience. Then I remember all of those folks who live this life everyday. I am so blessed. So it my wish that everyone take time to count their blessings during this Christmas season. Then go about your daily life with the expectations to bless someone. Hold a door open for someone, give someone your seat, or speak a kind word. If you’re tall like me give someone who may be height challenged a hand with something on the top shelf. Volunteer to help with a children’s program, serve food to the less fortunate through service organizations, visit the home-bound, or make goodies and deliver them to first responders. If you are not comfortable giving cash to those on the street asking for help go to McDonald’s and buy small gift cards to hand out. These are just a few ideas to bless someone but I’m sure you can come up with your own.
Now I wish you a merry and blessed Christmas season. So go and bless others and you will receive even more blessings.
