How to count your blessings in a political year!
April 16, 2016
Blessings come in many forms.
Many of us just finished performing one of the most stressful national responsibilities of the year…paying taxes to the government.
Many others find themselves inundated with tv, radio and internet messaging focused on the few that are literally fighting their way to that house at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
It’s a wonder why our emotions flare up when the political discussions start at the dinner table, on the plane, at church, at the office and even at your favorite sporting event. You just can’t seem to escape the conversations. And the fact that we have another 6 months of this stuff, can all but render some of us helpless.
But Helpless WE ARE NOT! We are actually quite blessed.
we live in the best country on this planet. And our everyday friends and family are the true blessings.
These blessings are all around us! Everyday! Everywhere!
Yesterday I took a call from an awesome daughter-in-law about her upcoming trip to Houston from Mississippi.
We will call her “Joy”.
She had a joy in her voice. Confidence in her words. And hope in her message. She is tirelessly accompanying her Mother-in-law to Houston for a slew of cancer screenings and treatments. They plan to be in the Texas Medical Center for weeks. And this is not the first trip. Wow!
As we discussed her journey so far, it was very apparent that Joy had such a caring soul. And better yet, she is determined to use her many blessings to continue to help out. I was inspired and lucky to be able to spend a few minutes on the phone with a person who’s only mission is to bless others. I quickly let Joy know that Friday Harbour will do what we can to help keep the wind in her sails.
JOY is not alone. JOY is unwavering. JOY is contagious. JOY will always win out.
On this beautiful Saturday afternoon in downtown Manhattan. I had a conversation with a true blessing.
When we cut through the noise on tv, radio, Internet and especially in the ill fated political discussions…we humans can share in the simple blessing of just being there for one another!
Will you join JOY and me in using your blessings in Healing Cancer One Night At A Time?
