look at what you have
my family and i went to dinner at our favorite local mexican place last night. we love it for many reasons. the food, the fact that it's walking distance from our house, tia maria, need i say more?
well, dinner was great, but the best part for me was the walk home. things have been a little stressful lately, and i think as sharon and i look at ways that we can adapt and move into new molds, we've found different things that we can do to cut back...live with less, etc...
i was thinking about all of this as we were walking home (i was even a little grouchy...just a little), i suddenly realized that our life is good. actually...our life is fantastic! and..if not one thing got better, for the rest of our lives...we'd still call ourselves blessed. no need for a nicer house, or a better car, or bigger paycheck. if we just look at what we do have, we'd be happy.
this may seem like a no-brainer for many of you, but this epiphany on the walk home provided me with a whole lot of peace. contentment is a good thing....live with that! :-)
