Love Note: I Guess We Have Everything We Need
Lately I have taken up the practice of listing the things I am grateful for at the most basic level.
Clean drinking water. Gas in my car. Food in my refrigerator. Winnie, warm and healthy, cuddled up in the crook of my knee.
I count every one of my friends. I say thank you for every person I love.
By listing my gratitude for the basics, I see how all my needs are taken care of.
Suddenly, areas of my life that looked like a broken tail light held together with duct tape begin to take on the appearance of a fancy halogen bulb; pristine and burning bright.
I once heard the author SARK tell a story about a family member who had a clutter problem.
It grated on her nerves to see their home in such a mess.
One day, she sat down on this person's bed, and to her surprise, sat down right on top of a bag of potato chips.
She looked up into this person's eyes and said with compassion,
"Well, I guess now we have everything we need."
Just a reminder today, as you stand in your own river of abundance, to remember put on your red-framed readers and take a good look.
Grateful for YOU,
