This is a post I wrote about two years ago, that I thought could use a revision and a repost. (Thanks Brooklyne for the idea of a repost!) ;)
Sometimes, especially as we grow up, (or get older), we get busy, and we lose track of all the little blessings God sends us in our lives. I've noticed in my own life, I sometimes lose track of what matters most. Like when your brother draws you the most adorable picture, your sister leaves a note on your nightstand, a favorite flower in bloom- whatever is special to you. We sometimes seem to overlook or ignore these special moments.
God gives us blessings, and often times they are what we call "little blessings." Don't loose these moments. You'll never get them back. Instead of worrying and stressing, focus on the good things. The special things, the meaningful things, the things that you look back on as being some of the most special and best moments of your life. We don't want to look back and realize we wasted so many precious moments.
Don't let life pass you by. Sometimes when life gets overwhelming, we just push ourselves to get through the day, week, month, even year. Enjoy the moment! Even if life is hard right now, enjoy the little things, because when you look back, you'll wish you did. Focus on what matters most. Jesus, family, close friends, a favorite animal or plant- cherish them all. Cherish the little moments- the little things.
Take a moment to thank Jesus for your many blessings. :)
