The Greatest Blessings of Mankind?

The greatest blessings of mankind?

“The great blessings of mankind are within us, and within our reach; but we shut our eyes and, like people in the dark, fall short of the very thing we search for without finding it”. — Seneca

For me, the greatest blessing of mankind is about two weeks away.

In America, we mostly celebrate it with colored eggs, chocolate bunnys and marshmellow peeps, because, “that’s the way we’ve always done it”.

It’s as if we are in the dark to the true “reason for the season”.

When we stop chasing it, I’m convinced, peace, joy and love will find us.

Very often though, I forget my own advice and have to question things, and start all over.

Today, I promise to be present.

I’ll leave a light on for you too.

Make it a “bright” day, and see all the simple blessings at your feet, and all around you. They’re there everyday, if we only had eyes to see…..carpe diem, jeff 🙂
