Gems of Gratitude, Reflections

Today’s Gem of Gratitude #85

Today I am thankful for my hair. It may not always do what I want it to do or look the way that I want it to look, but it is there and it is mine.

So many people right now wish that they had a head full of hair, but for various reasons do not, whether it is due to a medical condition, biological condition, or even an environmental condition. So during those moments when thoughts of discontentment concerning my hair pop into my mind, I think of how blessed I am to have a full head of hair, and I think of how many people are experiencing their own struggles with their hair right now. And thinking about that humbles me, because what I might consider to be an annoying issue with my hair would actually be a welcomed problem for someone who wishes that they had more hair.

I have said this before (and will likely say this again), I have learned the importance of being content with whatever I have and being thankful for whatever I have, because I have come to the realization that blessings do not always come in the form that we think they will, and if you do not appreciate the blessings that you have, your blessings might be given to someone else.

And, no, the picture included in this blog entry is not of me, it is of the beautiful Hayley Marie Norman, whose hair, personality, and spirit are beautiful and much appreciated. #lovebythedrop
