446 – Blessings

“Concentrate on counting your blessing and you’ll have little time to count anything else.”

“Reflect upon your present blessings—of which every man has many—not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some. “ – Charles Dickens

Start now and you will be amazed how much we have to thank God for. The Christmas Market, look at the lights and the produce. Lovely things to hang on the tree, sugar coated nuts, French fries and sweets to eat.

The cold days keep you braced and a walk energizes you.

Share your enthusiasm, with speech, song and dance.
