The more often we see the things around us – even the beautiful and wonderful things – the more they become invisible to us. That is why we often take for granted the beauty of this world: the flowers, the trees, the birds, the clouds – even those we love. Because we see things so often, we see them less and less.”
― Joseph B. Wirthlin
Today as I read this quote I was reminded of the things I often take for granted. The things that are always there. People that are always in my life.
One of the reasons I love the ocean and the mountains is I don’t get to see it all the time but when I do I love to take in the awesomeness of God’s handy work. I love to think about how beautiful it is and I love to go visit and take it all in. Today as I thought about the blessings in my life, the smaller ones that get over looked, it multiplied into an abundance of blessings. I think I will step back and look at my blessings as if I were seeing them for the very time.
