One of my FB friends wrote that she is not stressed this holiday season because of all of her blessings. She then asks, "How are you blessed?"

My blessing are numerous, and not one more important, or more meaningful than another.

I am blessed to have a home which keeps me warm and protected from the elements, especially in New England at this time of year.

I am blessed to have the sense of taste, so I can enjoy the abundance of food at my finger tips. I am blessed to have the knowledge and foresight to not overindulge and the help of my many Spark friends.

I am blessed to have my hearing, so I can hear my grandchildren's laughter, my family and friends when they tell me they love me, the sounds of the holidays.

I am blessed with a voice, so I am able to express my love to my children, grandchildren, family and friends through spoken words.

I am blessed to have my sight, so I can enjoy my Yule tree, (pictured above) and all the decorations that help make our neighborhoods bright and festive.

I am blessed to have my job, which affords me all of the necessities of life, as well as a few luxuries, here and there.

I am blessed with fairly good health.

I am blessed with a good, caring heart, a sense of humor.

Now tell me, how do YOU feel blessed?
