Open Your Eyes and Look Around You

This last week has been a real eye-opener to me. The threat of Aaron being really sick has made me realize that I have been taking things for granted...my children's smiles, laughter, eyes, stories, and endless questions. I need to cherish each day with them because I never know what may happen tomorrow. Life is so precious and beautiful...we just need to open our eyes and notice it!

I love this little clip about living in thanksgiving daily:



"Our minds have the marvelous capacity to notice the unusual. However, the opposite is true as well. The more often we see the things around us, even the beautiful and wonderful things, the more they become invisible to us. That's why we often take for granted the beauty of this world. Even those we love. Because we see things so often, we see them less and less. Those who live in thanksgiving daily, however, have a way of opening their eyes and seeing the wonders and the beauties of this world as they're seeing them for the first time. Look around you. Notice the people you care about. Notice the fragrance of the flowers and the song of the bird. When we open our eyes and give thanks for the bountiful beauty of this life we live in thanksgiving daily."
Have a GREAT Thanksgiving tomorrow as you notice all of the beautiful blessings that surround you!
