An Encore on Birthdays


Today could be the birthday of a family or a dear friend of yours. We usually call the celebrant, greet and wish them many more years, and maybe send them a gift.

Maybe it would be a lovely addition to let that person know how much he or she has influenced us and touched our lives. And thank them. Especially so during this year when people can use more positivity than ever.

Today is a dear aunt's, a long-time friend's, and an elementary school classmate's birthday. All have made my life more colorful, meaningful, and joyful. I intend to spend more than just a few minutes telling them how much that means to me.

And like putting the icing on the cake, I will ask our Lord to bless them more.

During these days when we have more time than ever, let's make sure we make those minutes count.

My name's Anna Maria and I publish a new post on my blog every Friday! Check out my website touchedbygrace.today and subscribe for book updates and more blog posts! If you've been #tbgtoday, feel free to share your story of grace here.
