Like most people, I seem to want more than I have. I spend more time thinking about the things that I aspire to than the things that are already under my roof. Even my roof isn't good enough, apparently: I want a bigger one that covers more rooms. I spend a lot of time working on career-related stuff so that we'll be able to afford that bigger roof someday soon.
But then I'll cross paths with someone who wishes he had a roof to begin with, who has no hope of ever being able to do the kind of work that will help him achieve that within his lifetime. And suddenly my life seems much more charmed than it did just a moment before.
Your turn: What are you thankful for? Why do we seem to forget about all we have as we dream about what we don't?
