Grateful

I lost my camera on Monday. I left it at a playground and didn’t realize it until the next day. I thought it would be lost forever (pessimism), but the managers found it and returned it to us. Prayer works and people are good.

I didn’t want a new camera. I don’t have the perfect camera, but it suits me just fine.

It’s like when I broke my phone, I went and I ordered the exact same phone. Even if though there was something better out there, I didn’t need it or want it.

You can be happy with what you have.

I’m not always good at that. I sometimes become discontented with my house, my appearance, my belongings, my life. But really, things aren’t that bad. Things are actually really good.

So I’m feeling grateful. Grateful sort of just equals happy.

There is so much we have that we forget. Electricity, plumbing, houses, clothes, furniture–we don’t give them a second thought. We can even be grateful air to breathe. There is always something good in life, and usually life is overflowing with good things if we just take the time to notice them.
