Rich


***

If I'm honest with myself - and with you - I'll admit there are a few things I want:

better health (she said, as she polished off the peanut m&ms)
a sense of Home
perhaps a happily-ever-after or two...

I must admit, however, that the things I do not want for
far outweigh any perceived deficit on my part:

living in a country with an unlimited supply of peanut m&ms
a job that affords me the freedom of flight
a heart deeply loved
a mind mostly at peace
a God who doles out do-overs as though they didn't cost Him a thing...

and this is just to name a few,
(not to mention a dream-come-true or two)
when held up against the things I lack,
I'd say I'm soundly in the black...

.....and counting......and counting....

...and counting......

  2. Yes, I'd say you are. So are we all, aren't we? It's all a matter where we place our focus.
