We so often think the grass is greener on the other side. But is it really? Now that I’m an adult I dream of the days of no responsibilities, no bills, no mortgage, property taxes, high gas prices and I can go on and on! LOL!
Enjoying the season you’re in is KEY! In this current season with bills due and dishes and laundry piling up! I sometimes feel like no rescue or rest is in sight! BUT if I step back and get out of my funk I am able to see something SO spectacular that it takes my breath away! I take a breath, step back I find that I’m NOT homeless! I don’t live cold at night wondering if I’ll make it through the night! I have two cars in great working order! I don’t have to worry about bus schedules and having to wait outdoors with my child just to get to the doctors or run errands. I have clothes to wear! I don’t have holes in my shoes. My clothes are cleaned and pressed. I have food to eat! I don’t go hungry. I have friends who love me. I don’t worry about who I can go to in times of need!
I may barely have enough to pay my bills. I may not have the food that I want in my refrigerator. I may not have designer clothes in my closet. I may not drive the car of my dreams. I may not have the bank account that is full and overflowing! But I do have life! I do have joy! I have hope! I have LOVE! I have promise! I am healthy! I have FAMILY! I AM RICH!!!!!!
