I love the saying "count your blessings." It's such a wonderful phrase to remind you to stop and appreciate what you have. We are so blessed to be in this world. This time of year is such a magical time when people are in a gentler frame of mind and are kinder to each other. Even though it's important to count your blessings, it's more important to enjoy them, and savor them. When we allow ourselves to simply enjoy our blessings we give ourselves and those around us the space to feel blessed with us.
Google's definition of blessing is: "God's favor and protection." I LOVE that definition because it's true. When you feel blessed and feel it in your heart you do feel God's favor and protection and you walk though life in the Truth of that knowing. You're empowered, inspired, cherished, and honored knowing that you're blessed by God. Feel blessed today and allow the blessings you feel to emit out to others so that they'll be reminded that they too are blessed - that they too are in "God's favor and protection." What a beautiful gift to give yourself, your loved ones and to others during these Holy Days.
May you know that you're blessed and always have been.
