Today, I'm going to take my own advice and count my blessings. I taught a lesson in church on Sunday about being content by being grateful for what we have. There is a fabulous old proverb that goes:
The greater wealth is contentment with little.
Beautiful, isn't it? It applies to so many areas of our lives and I've decided to make it a mantra of sorts. So, I went on for half an hour about being content--and not just resigned. This morning a friend stopped by and I asked her, "Did my lesson bug you?" because it seemed too.
Today, I am grateful for a friend who said that, yes, my lesson bugged her. She was quite upset because, "This is not what I want to hear, Emily!"
And she loves me anyway.
