Today’s topic is blessings.
Everyone one of us have things we can be grateful for. Some of those things are so ordinary that we may not even see them as blessings. For example, if we can have the means to have breakfast and dinner every day, that is a blessing. I had broken my wrist a few years ago and I could not use my hand for some weeks. Then, I realized what a blessing having a functional arm/hand was. I had never thought of having an arm as something to be thankful for.
The reason I am writing this post today is something that happened yesterday. I have a lot of friends and I spend a good amount of time with them. I go stay at their place and they at mine. My mom just arrived and two of my friends stayed at my place after she arrived. We had a really good time, but at some point, my social battery started running out. But my friends left anyways, so I was ok. Then, a few hours after, my neighbor just dropped by. I love people and my neighbor, but I was kind of tired of being with people for a long time. She stayed a bit and left. After, I told my mom that I was happy she did not stay long. My mom said: ‘Why do you say that? If they did not love you, would they come visit you?’. And that hit me hard. For a long time, I had prayed for friends and now I have it and I should probably be more thankful about this. Maybe, I have a lot of friends now, so it became ordinary and I am forgetting that it is a blessing.
What do you think about all of this? What blessing do you have you can be more grateful for? Let’s discuss!
