Life is hard, we need all the blessings we can get so when they come your way be open to the blessings from others.
Most of the time you may not even realize that you are receiving a blessing from another person. If you look though, you will really see the little things that other people do for you, these are all blessings.
The person that made you smile because you looked like you were sad, or needed cheering up. They are a gift, a blessing, shared with you. Let them know you are grateful for them when they do this.
The person who opens a door for you, or let’s you go first is putting you ahead of themselves. This is another blessing. By being considerate, they are making your way easier. It might not seem like much but when you think about it you will see it as a blessing. Consider this, if that same person walked in front of you, or let the door slam back on you, how would you feel? Frustrated, angry perhaps? It is easy to point out the faults so don’t take the blessings for granted.
When you are sick and someone calls to make sure you are okay, or drops by with food, again, it is a blessing. They care and want to make sure you are okay. Their offer to help you is sincere and from the heart. Make sure they know you appreciate it.
There are so many ways people show they care throughout your life, every one of them are a blessing, even if in disguise. The easiest one to spot is when someone actually tells you to have a blessed day, or gives a ‘God bless you’, these you know are blessings. Words of caring and love can also be a blessing, have a safe drive home; a silent prayer by one who cares.
We don’t always know when we’ve received a blessing from someone but that doesn’t mean it hasn’t happened. Make a conscious effort to recognize blessings that come your way. When they do, be open to the blessings from others.
