Bing Crosby - "Count Your Blessings"
As the city I live in is wreathed in smoke and ash falls from the sky like snow, I am grateful for the most simple of things; my home, my safety, my life. Ventura county has lost over 80,000 acres and the Getty Center and Bel Air are burning. I'm worried, but also very very grateful.
In these dark times, as the song suggests, I count my blessings. The things I have, tangible or not, and show as much gratitude for every little gift I have.
So today, with hope and gratitude in equal share, I choose Bing Crosby's version of "Count Your Blessings" as my, send your prayers, open your doors, leave out water and food, song for a, together we conquer, our greatest gift is each other, the season for giving, Wednesday.
