If only people were like cactus (without the porcupine like quills of course) being able to gather up those showers of blessing, both big and small, like a cactus gathers up water for those dry times.
My word of intention / inspiration today is blessing(s).
Sometimes its so easy to feel blessed, everything goes just right or just a bit better than expected. One could call that a blessing. At other times when everything seems to be going to hell in a hand basket. Blessings are harder to recognize. It’s at those times blessings are hard to find net alone count up. This doesn’t mean that we haven’t had any blessings durning these droughts, their just smaller so harder to see–blinded by problems and pre-occupied in finding solutions, blessings become invisible you know?
Its at these more trying and difficult times that I follow this quote to the letter. It seems to remind me, though blessings maybe smaller in size, fewer in number, we need to be patient. Waiting for things to materialize isn’t always the easiest assignment. Expecting only the big things, like they often say, go big or go home, leaves one to often without proper amounts of water–allowing ourselves to become wilted, confused, and believing we’re in a blessing desert.
So grab some shade, a cool lemonade, and use this time tested blessing math.
“When I count my blessings I count twice! “
All the best.
