#BlogElul: Count

Count your blessings.

Every day.

Even when the world feels dark and unfair, blessings are out there: friends who love you, a new day, a clean slate, a lesson learned, a hand to hold, a gentle hug – given and received.


A kind word.

Fluffy clouds.

A song.


A cardinal in spring.


A smile.

A rainbow.


Count them.

Savor them.

Be them.

They’re life’s truest riches.


Inspired by Ima on (and off) the Bima, this #BlogElul post is one in a series marking the days of the Hebrew month of Elul, which precedes the Jewish High Holidays and traditionally serves as a time of reflection and spiritual preparation for the new year.
