Count Your Blessings

Let love live in your heart!

Let's think of a happy time in your life. Where were you and what were you doing?

People don't stop and think about the little moments that happen, and that we are making memories. God winks!

Recently, I had a busy day and realized it was one of the nicest times in my almost 80 years. My son came over for a weekly visit to help me with some chores, and a friend of mine stopped over to give me some homegrown tomatoes. Good conversation and peaceful surroundings made the day special! Simple yet memorable.

I am aging and realize the importance of receiving support in my old age. We should help each other and show care and concern for everyone. That is a key to being productive at any age. Learn, listen, care, and be proactive. A good trait is to be helpful, encouraging, and positive in your attitude. Attitude is everything. It changes your perspective on all things. I wish I had known this years ago—it would have made my life a lot easier!

Don't look back—look forward to new beginnings. Appreciate each new day and make it a priority to do something every day to make yourself happy. Listen to music, read a book, or laugh at a joke or a fond memory. Think about the precious time we have been blessed with. Every moment counts. Be courteous, do a kindness, or call an old friend and share a memory. Paint a picture. Look at the birds and flowers. How beautiful Creation is in all its glory! Spectacular. Butterflies and lightning bugs. Visit a lonely person or call them and say hello. You may be the only one that spoke to them that week. How sad. Say a prayer for someone and ask God to send them peace and tranquility.

We don't know what people are going through that day and you could be the person who gives some happiness and joy! What a blessing. I hope that this little article helps someone to think, listen, and learn. Be happy and love the little things in life that do mean a lot. God Bless!
