Reflect upon your present blessings, of which everyone has many.
When I was trying to think about what to write about last night, I saw this quote somewhere. It’s so fitting this time of year. As we get into December and things start to get hectic we often forget about the things that truly matter most and we fail to notice the blessings that we have. We can get caught up in the race to buy the most, best, and biggest gifts, forgetting that it’s really about the person you’re giving to and the blessing of having them in your life. Sometimes simply spending time with someone is the best gift you can give. Mr Chiots and I aren’t big gift people, we don’t give each other many things. Instead we like to spend time together during this season, drinking hot cocoa and looking at Christmas lights, listening to Christmas music, or simply sitting and relaxing by candlelight. Make sure you take some time to reflect upon you blessings during this busy month, it will help you enjoy the season all the more.
How do you like to relax and take time to reflect during the holiday season?
