It's a Wonderful Life
For those of you familiar with the movie "It's a Wonderful Life," you know the scene where George Bailey finds himself standing outside his home on a dark, wintery night, peering in the window at his family and friends. At that moment George concludes that everyone would have been better off if he had never been born. Last night, as I headed out to put the chickens to bed, I had a similar experience. It was dark and cold and all the rooms downstairs were lit up. It was an odd feeling, peering into my own life. However, unlike George, it really struck me how blessed I am and what a wonderful life I have. I hope I have many such moments over my lifetime so I will always appreciate the things that I have and the life I've been given. And that is my Christmas wish for all my readers - to be grateful for all that life has to offer.
