Reminder
_______________________________________


The Creator reminds us that blessings are counted
in the way that we choose to look at them.

 

Anything that has brought a smile to your lips, joy to your heart or a lightness to your step is a Blessing.

Anything that has made your life more comfortable, has lightened your burden or has brought warmth to your home is a Blessing.

Anything that has supported your body, has increased your endurance or has opened your heart is a Blessing.

Anything that has made you look deeper, has expanded your understanding or has increased your compassion is a Blessing.

Anything that has tested your strength, has fortified your commitment or has forced you to grow is a Blessing.

Anything that has reminded you of how precious life is and has taught you to treasure your Relations is a Blessing.
