Each and every day is a blessing! This morning while admiring the tiny bits of snow clinging to the pines and watching the cardinals dart about, I am feeling quite grateful. Grateful for family, friends, you, our clients reading this (who really have become family and friends!) a thriving business, a pot of coffee, fuzzy socks, my pink pony robe, a day to putz around and maybe do a little cleaning or just read a good book.
As the sun filters through our windows, I pray for our soldiers who protect our country and cannot be home to celebrate this day with their families, I pray for the homeless who have no window to claim as their own, I pray for all of the families in financial stress who just need to know that the Hand that feeds the birds will feed them as well, I pray all have a peaceful and calm day.
I leave you with the words of St. Francis of Assisi;
Lord, make me an instrument of Your peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon: where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; where there is sadness, joy. O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love; for it is in giving that we receive; it is in pardoning that we are pardoned; it is in dying that we are born again to eternal life.
