Counting Blessings

Christmas Blessings to You and Yours!

I’m up early.  All is quiet, not a creature is stirring except the 2 cats who are ever curious as to the ribbons and bows under the tree.  I love to spend the early morning sunrise writing.  There’s something magical about the hush of a peaceful house, white Christmas lights twinkling in the dark, a fresh cup of coffee and soft lit candles reminding us to count our blessings.

The magic of Christmas has always held me.  For me, there’s nothing like a great Christmas Eve mass with my sons singing all the old hymns which bring back memories.  Being with my children is special to me and it’s a gift that I never take for granted.

So this morning, I’m counting my blessings, shedding a few tears, sending up a few prayers, tip-toeing down memory lane and just feeling grateful to be alive, in this very moment for I still believe…

I believe in love.  I believe in gratitude.  I believe in faith.  I believe in kindness.  I believe in connecting with others.  I believe in truth.  I believe laughter and a good cry cleanse the soul.  I believe in forgiveness.  I believe in God.  I believe in my soul family.  I believe in you and I believe in me.

Shine On!
