Life has a funny way of making the things you love, the things you should be cherishing, cheap, less important and " not quite". Just this morning I've been thinking about how fickle I am, how quickly I want more. I am so full to the brim with dear friends and the things in life that really matter. I get all tangled in myself and what I think I need. I have been blessed with people and relationships so rich I don't think I could ever reach the bottom of the barrel. I guess this is a confession of sorts. And let's be honest, we get fixed on things and cirucmstances and forget that true riches are in relationship. The true blessing of this earth is the truth in those pages, sunlight, the voice on the other end, those roses that no one takes care of, dinner together, people that remember you, and my love who puts his toothbrush next to mine. The true things of life are surrounding all of us, and are always present despite the pain and struggle of the everyday. I"ve been missing it, focused on where I'm headed, the "not quite" , the improvements, the uncomfortable and how to find comfort again.
But today.... today I'm grateful.
