Count your blessings

Reflect upon your present blessings, of which every man has many--not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.
Charles Dickens
As one of my dear friends reflected recently, some days you're the stick, some days you're the pinata...but even the pinata is full of blessings.
This is one of those days when every time I try to "fix" something, I create another problem. (See...this isn't even the picture I wanted to use, but I couldn't delete it. I decided to leave it and trust that someone will enjoy seeing it here. Sigh.) So I am reminding myself. I have so many, many blessings.
I'd love it if you would share some of yours.
Wanda Tucker, your energy coach

I think we can all count our blessings if we have a place to live and food to eat and a bed to tuck our children in at night. Right now there are so many displaced because of natural disasters or those who are mentally or physically unable to care for themselves. What about the missing/runaway children or the homeless sleeping on the sidewalk or in their car. I think we need to be more thankful for the small blessings in our everyday lives when there are so many out there who have nothing. I don't believe in taking anything for granted.

What a great perspective! If we are living in the now (living in the moment), how can we possibly take anything for granted? Thanks.

Rather zen-like question?

I know I have blessings, but would it hurt some grand celestial plan if I won the Mega Lotto? *grin*

Wanda Tucker said...

I hope not! I keep buying my tickets and I figure I am giving the universe the opportunity to fulfill the plan if it is supposed to be.

*grinnin' back atcha!*

Hi Wanda, you can probably delete that picture if you click on the "Edit HTML" tab.

Here's how.

1) Open the posting you want to edit as you always do.
2) Notice the two tabs just above the edit window: "Edit HTML" and "Compose."
3) Click on "Edit HTML".
4) Look for the html tag for the photo, probably at the top of the page. It will be bracketed with these symbols: < and >. The text probably looks like this:
There may be an additional html tag that starts out like this: "img . . . ."
5) Delete all html tags related to the image, including the < and > symbols.

Oops, the HTML tag you are looking for (for the birds) is probably something like this, with the < and > brackets: 8080/1242/1600/seagulls1.jpg

Sorry about that. : )

Thanks, Grace. I decided that since the photo was refusing to be deleted (using the composition screen), it needed to be there--so I left it.

Glad to see you here.
