We rush about our lives every day, hardly able to stop and take in the blessings God has given us. Today, I stopped, for just a moment, and realized how grateful I am for my life. I have good health, freedom, salvation and family and friends who truly love me. I might not be the next big thing, but I am loved by those who count.
So, to those that might be thinking about all the “things” that have to be done this holiday season, pause for just a moment today and be grateful for what you have. Take a slow breath and think about our military men and women who are so far from their homes, including my own son, who is in Guam today. Circle those you can and pray for those who cannot be with you. In the end, the one moment you reflect with a grateful heart will be something you will remember all season long!
