Everyday we are given blessings, but we often ignore those blessings or take them for granted. Each day we wake up is a blessing. Each day we can walk, talk, hear, see, smell, taste, touch is a blessing. Blessings come in many forms, yet are we thankful?
We usually do not think about our blessings until tragedy strikes close to home. For me I am blessed, but it is abundantly clear today as those around me are coping with the loss of love ones. Today I sent my condolences to two families. One family lost their matriach, their mother. Who fought the battle with cancer until the good Lord said it was time to claim her victory. The other family is that of a young couple who lost their only child who was less than a year old to illness. In times like these are questions should not be of why? What we need to be reminded of are the many blessings we will always have because these lives touched our hearts. I am not close to these families. They are merely acquaintances that have shared space within my lifetime. However, I felt a pull toward letting them know that they are not alone in this world and that the pain shall pass. That is all I can do at this time. Yet, I feel blessed because I know that there is a life after this and that those who go before me are now enjoying such a peaceful, serene place of existence.
May you all be blessed today!
