Hello Sunshine. Today, I am talking about gratitude. It is so easy for us to take the simple things in life for granted—until we can’t do them anymore. We take walking for granted since we have legs. The day our legs are taken from under us, it becomes a different story. At that point, we start to appreciate the value of having two feet and being able to use them. Our beautiful eyes. They say that they are the windows to our soul, but we take our eyes for granted until the day when our sight begins to dim. We then realize the value of having clear vision. The value of seeing the beauty in the world around us.
Why do we take these little, but big things for granted. Who would have ever thought we would yearn for a day where we could dine indoors at a restaurant, the days where we could gather together with friends and family for holidays and for birthday celebrations, we could jump on a plane and go on vacation, oh my, the days where we could just go and relax on one of those spacious and luxurious cruise ships with thousands of fellow passengers. Those days, my friends, are no more, for now.
Our hope is that someday God will shine his light upon us and give us another chance to enjoy the simple things in life— but, with more appreciation for the mundane, the ordinary and for each other. And of course, more appreciation and love for the One who gave it to us so freely. We hope and pray that He will give it back to us—–so freely again.
We pray that He will shine His light on us again–real soon.
