This is a little late in the day but I didn't want Saint Patty's day to pass us by and not recognize all of the blessings I know I am lucky to have in my life.
1// I AM WELL LOVED
I consider myself blessed when it comes to my family and friends. They are all extremely supportive, encouraging and love me unconditionally. I am not be married at this point in my life but I am loved. That's all I can ask for.
2// I AM EMPLOYED
With how things are these days, finding a job that pays decent is definitely a blessing. I am doubly blessed because at the moment I have two. I do not take that for granted. It definitely helps keep things in perspective when I have those days at work that really wear on me.
3// I HAVE A HOME
I don't take for granted that I have a place to call home. I know that it may not be the case for some and I can't imagine how hard that would be. I may not have a place of my own yet, but the space that I do have is definitely appreciated.
4// I BELIEVE IN SOMETHING BIGGER THAN ME
I consider myself extremely lucky that I found God at a young age. If anything, I believe that believing in something bigger than me, keeps me humbled and challenges me constantly. My relationship with God has brought me comfort in times of pain, strength in moments of fear, joy when facing hardship and courage to believe in the passions of my heart.
5// I AM ALIVE and HEALTHY
I am lucky because I woke up this morning and was given another day to live out my story. I may not be in perfect shape but I am alive and well. I have no sickness in my body. I don't have issues with diabetes or high blood pressure. My organs and joints are all working properly. I know how easy it is for these things to change, and I must be honest I often take it for granted but it is something I am working on.
Happy Saint Patrick's Day!!
