We are blessed...truly blessed.

There is an old saying, "Count your blessings...things could be worse."

Well, those old sayings come from somewhere and are usually based in truth. I'll go one better. Don't just count your blessings, list them and read them every morning. I keep them posted on my wall so I can see them every morning.

For example, as little 150 years ago, people owned people. Just a few years ago, we got 3 channels on television. When I was a kid, my grandparents didn't have running water or indoor plumbing. My Dad was born at home. College was not an option except for those who were wealthy. 70 years ago, we were in a depression and people were not only broke, they were starving...standing in line for bread. 75 years ago, the convenience of running to the store for a gallon of milk was not an option for anyone. I could go on and on.

Life is good, life is great. We are so blessed! It is imperitive that we take a few minutes out of every day to thank God for all the wonderful things in our life. You will be surprised how your perspective changes.

Peace and love,

Quote of the year...

“Be not the judges of men, but love your brothers and sisters, and find ways to reach out to them in common goals and aspirations. Where there is love in common, the divisions of creed will melt away and reveal the true nature of man’s eternal destiny -- one of unity in purpose, to be perfect as the Father is perfect."
