Less of Ourselves
Today, December 1st, I celebrated my birthday, surrounded by my husband and children, I was so blessed. I'm thankful for them. They mean so very much to me and my life wouldn't be the same without them. Funny thing is, even though today was my birthday, what we did wasn't about ME. It wasn't about what they did for me or got me..... it was about what we were doing together. We came together in unity of thought and purpose to help someone else do something important to them. In this process, I believe WE recieved the greater blessing..... I know I did. And it always works that way. When we take our eyes off of ourselves and realize that "IT" is not all about us.... we have a greater capacity for blessing. There is so much more we can do together, so much more that we can accomplish..... so many more people whose lives we can touch and bless if we can each find a way to think less of ourselves and more of others.
