This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Mercy. The opinions and text are all mine.
Mercy believes that “our greatest blessing is to see others blessed” – a statement that I agree with wholeheartedly. One of my favorite programs to participate in during Christmastime are those where individuals purchase gifts for families in need. It tugs at my heart to be able to give to a present to a child who might not have otherwise have one this season. To me, that is what Christmas is all about.
This holiday season, Mercy wants to make sure that Our Blessings Count. They have set up this fantastic website that anyone can go to and share their blessings, no matter how big or small.
When you open the website, you will notice stars falling down the screen. These are blessings that others have entered, and when you click on a star, you can view the blessing, and where the person who entered it is from. You can also share your blessing by clicking the words in the center. This website holds such a strong message and is refreshing to see this time of year.
As for my holiday, I plan on sharing several Random Acts of Kindness this year. Little things such as paying for the meal of the person sitting behind me in the drive-thru lane, or being Secret Santa and sending stocking stuffers to some unexpected friends are among the few ideas that I have. I am truly thankful for being so blessed with a happy, healthy family and great friends. This season it is my honor to share with others.
Mercy recognizes the stress we put on ourselves and our families over the holidays. They want to remind us that ‘Our greatest blessing is to see others blessed.’ One way we can do this is to pause, list our blessings, and share them with others.
