Some final thoughts 
As we walk through our days we should keep our eyes open for the unexpected enchantments, the small miracles that are there if we are willing to look, the changing of seasons, the health we have, our trusted friends, the love of our family, the dawning of a day, the sent of a favorite fragrance, the sight of a rainbow…and on and on goes the lists. May you be given eyes to see your many blessings.
