Count your blessings....


We awake each day and get involved in lots of things: some important, others, not so much. We read the news like our lives depend on it, even when much of it is a world away and not all that pertinent to our lives.  But this past weekend, most of the world stopped and celebrated religious events that marked, among many other things, redemption and rejuvenation. These weren’t the topics on the Sunday morning news and talk shows, they didn’t affect our personal landscapes, and they mostly were ignored on the more popular social media sites.  But Easter and Passover have been important holidays for centuries, and they count greatly in how we live and lead our lives. While it’s sometimes difficult, we should all re-double our focus on the things that really matter to our overall well-being. So, on this Monday morning after, remember that many of the things you can count, don’t count; and many of the things you can’t count, really count. That’s a holiday message we all may want to contemplate today.
