Feeling Blessed

Some days, when life is beating me up it is easy to forget how blessed I am and how thankful I am for life

Today is such a day. I just finished viewing a very personal video essay Target : Company : Dream in Color that features my brother.

I am so fortunate to have a great family and two amazing siblings. As I get older I realize how important family is and how grateful I am to have such kind, warm, caring and beautiful people as siblings. 

I know life is hard sometimes, full of stress, and drama. However, it is great to take a moment and reflect on the gifts that life offers each of us: music, sunsets, architecture, art, dance, smiles, children, love and family.

I am blessed to have so much in my life. I may not be rich in wealth but I am rich with life.

I look forward to the life 2009 brings!
