Counting Blessings…


As most of you know, I have had my fair share of struggles lately.  I know I am not exactly alone in that department.  It seems that so many people are having challenges in their lives right now.

It’s been a long a difficult road, and it’s not exactly over yet.

And whilst in the beginning… I did a pretty good job of remaining positive and open to any and all possibilities…. after time (and a huge personal loss), it got harder and harder to remain upbeat.  I let it get to me.  I’m not proud of it.  But I did.

I forgot the most important thing in situations like this.

The very thing that I, myself, have preached about on this blog.

And that was to remain grateful.

I forgot to count my blessings.

My focus shifted from all that was right in my world, to all that was wrong.  And now…. it’s time to shift back.

Even though things aren’t settled yet… and there still remains uncertainty and a good deal of grieving in my life… it’s time to switch gears…. time to remember what is truly important…. time to reconnect with all that is wonderful in my life….

It’s time to count my blessings!!
