My Christmas Blessings

Amidst all the struggles we are going through right now, this is really something that reminds me how blessed I am.

1. This morning, I heard Ed Sheeran’s new song, Thinking Out Loud with the following lyrics:

When your legs don’t work like they used to before
And I can’t sweep you off of your feet
Will your mouth still remember the taste of my love?
Will your eyes still smile from your cheeks?

And, darling, I will be loving you ’til we’re 70
And, baby, my heart could still fall as hard at 23
And I’m thinking ’bout how people fall in love in mysterious ways
Maybe just the touch of a hand
Well, me—I fall in love with you every single day
And I just wanna tell you I am

So honey now
Take me into your loving arms
Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars
Place your head on my beating heart
I’m thinking out loud
That maybe we found love right where we are

When my hair’s all but gone and my memory fades
And the crowds don’t remember my name
When my hands don’t play the strings the same way
I know you will still love me the same

‘Cause honey your soul could never grow old, it’s evergreen
And, baby, your smile’s forever in my mind and memory
I’m thinking ’bout how people fall in love in mysterious ways
Maybe it’s all part of a plan
Well, I’ll just keep on making the same mistakes
Hoping that you’ll understand

But, baby, now
Take me into your loving arms
Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars
Place your head on my beating heart
Thinking out loud
That maybe we found love right where we are

So, baby, now
Take me into your loving arms
Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars
Oh, darling, place your head on my beating heart
I’m thinking out loud
That maybe we found love right where we are
Oh, baby, we found love right where we are
And we found love right where we are

I thought, if my husband heard this song, would he think of me?

A few minutes ago, he texted me a link to a youtube video of this song and told me that he heard it for the first time and he thought of me.

2. Tonight, my son said that they have a sort of school campaign where every $3 donation will give a full meal to a homeless person.

I told him, "ok" thinking he wanted me to give $3. But then he said, "I want to give $50 from my savings account." I thought I heard him wrong so I asked, "$50, you sure?"

He answered me with a yes and his reason was to be able to give meals to more people He also said that he wanted to get it from his own savings so I didn't have to spend money since he knew we were having a tough time because of the car accident.

And just like that, I knew that I would get over this small financial hurdle because I am blessed far more than I thought I was. I am blessed with what matters. Thank you, dear Lord for giving me Reisz.

PS… I told Reisz, I would shoulder half of the donation so he wouldn't break his bank account. 😉
