Serenity Sunday

The Four of Cups depicts  a young man forlornly looking over three cups in front of him, off to his side, appears a bright shiny Cup just waiting for him to reach out to it, yet the man is disastified. This is a card of dissention, and malcontent. When this card comes up, it often means that the person is seeking more than their needs and is not content with just having their needs met, when maybe what is needed is being thankful for one's blessings.

Count your blessings, this is such a simple charge and a reminder to be grateful for what we have. Yet in the craziness and the hustle and bustle of daily living stopping to be grateful and count our blessings is often one that we fail to overlook. Instead of the losses focus on the positive aspects of life, it can help in shifting attitudes and life challenges.

My List:

1.) My kids

2.) My pets

3.) Roses blooming

4.) Birds at the bird feeder

5.) Overcoming obstacles

6.) Iced tea

7.) Great books

8.) Good friends

9.) Butterflies

10.) Good night's sleep

Yes, that 4 of Cups dude could use a serenity list! I think we can all use an attitude adjustment, at one time or another.
I would add to my list of gratitudes: my kids playing well together, my husband teaching our daughter how to ride her bike, and coffee... wonderful coffee.
Thank you for making me stop and think of all the wonderfulness around me.
