Sometimes we take life for granted.
We forget how blessed we are. We think about what we don’t have or wish for things we don’t necessarily need rather than enjoy what we have here right now.
While all parts of the rose are essential, we tend to focus on two parts, the thorns and the blossom. We scorn the thorns for the pain they cause and delight in the beauty and the fragrance of the blossom.
We tend to treat life in the same manner. We reject the aspects that discomfort or embarrass us and take pride in that which we feel is worthy.
Sometimes we don’t even see the beauty of the petals because we are too focused on the thorns. Those are the times we have to strip away all that stands in the way so we may see the beauty of our lives.
And as beautiful as the flower of life is, it is so because of it’s thorns, leaves, stem, and all the part that make the flower bloom. Our lives work the same way. Every aspect of our lives up to this point in time has shaped us into who we are today.
Don’t take life for granted. Take this time to be grateful for all your blessings.
Thank God for your life. Thank your family and friends for love
Live and love. Be happy.
I am grateful to each of you. I wish you each a Happy Thanksgiving, a day filled with blessings and love.
