Sunshine on my shoulders….

 

Makes me happy….

Tonight I went to the Picnic Pops featuring hits of John Denver….

It was a great night…

It was beautiful weather after a very rainy day…

It was engaging and reflective…

As I laid my head back on my beach chair, I watched the clouds move, the moon appear, disappear and reappear, and sang along with 1000’s of other people to Country Road take me home. There was something so right, so cozy, so perfect in my West Michigan home town at the ski resort tonight…

And then I thought of Aurora Colorado and the Olympic opening ceremonies, and people who are starving, at war or those dealing with loss and grief and life events that change their outlook on life. I was struck by what a big world we live in and I realize how blessed I am….

I don’t ever want to forget to count my blessings…

What about you…have you counted your blessings lately….

Give a try, start a blessing list today…and as you list your blessings, play John Denver’s song Sunshine on my Shoulders make me happy…it will be a sweet moment!
