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.
Merry Christmas to you!
I hope yours was wonderful!
