For a moment today I let myself compare my life to others. I wished I had so many of the things I see others with.
Then, Scott stopped me and reminded me of a song we sang at church. “Count Your Many Blessings” which is a favorite of mine.
We stopped and sang the song together. Then, I reminded myself of all the blessings in my life. I have a strong and healthy body. I have a loving husband, who cares for me so much. I have an incredible family that continually loves and supports me. I have a job that I love, which also helps provide an income for our family. I have the knowledge of a loving Heavenly Father.
The list could go on and on.
If you ever get to the point of comparing yourself to others, STOP! Recognize the blessings in your life. They may be big or they may be small, but there are blessings.
