Usually, for Wordless Wednesday’s I show a few pictures from one of my recent travels. For this Wordless Wednesday, I thought it would be a good time for some reflection.
I’m sure we’ve all seen the devastation from the Oklahoma tornado’s by now. My heart aches every time I think about it – the families, friends, children, animals and memories that these folks will never forget. I also think about the devotion of those who have swooped in to help with recovery efforts and what they see through their eyes.
Then I think about the things I am thankful for – my family and friends, having a roof over my head, my life, my health, running and clean water. Material things are just material things. It’s the way a community / country comes together that is fascinating.
In honor of Wordless Wednesday, I encourage every one of us to look around and really take a good look at what we are thankful for and our everyday blessings. It’s sad that sometimes it takes a disaster for some of us to realize this but going forward, I hope we make every effort to count our blessings everyday and how quickly it can be taken away. I know I try.
