I watched “White Christmas” last night. I love “White Christmas.” That’s a strange statement for me to make, because firstly, I don’t even celebrate the holiday. Secondly, I live in South Florida so that fact, coupled with the threat of global warming, makes the likelihood of me seeing snow tomorrow highly doubtful.
I watch that movie every year simply because I love the music… one song in particular: Count Your Blessings. In my “older” age, I’ve learned to be grateful for what I already have, and look at them as blessings rather than burdens. A car that won’t start because of a dead battery is still a car. A long line at the grocery store checkout is not a problem when you have a full basket and the money to pay for it. Sitting in a traffic jam rather than being involved in the accident that is holding everyone up… that is a blessing. It’s also an opportunity to be grateful.
So, with all due respect to the sheep, I do, indeed fall asleep (if I’m lucky enough to do so before my husband starts snoring) counting my many blessings. Best wishes for a happy and healthy holiday season to all.
