Day 359: Surround

This morning, we were opening presents around the tree. My wife fell a bit behind in opening her own packages, which our youngest had been doling out to each of us. My wife looked to her left and to her right and noted:

“Oh my goodness! I’m surrounded by gifts!”

Oh, how so very true! Not to traffic in holiday clichés, but what a great reminder to take a moment today to acknowledge how fortunate I am–how fortunate we all are–for the gifts that surround us every day. And with no unwrapping necessary. All I really need to do is open my eyes–and open my heart–to all the blessings that are right here, right now, right within my reach.

Merry Christmas, everyone.
