"Life in abundance comes only through great love."
Sometimes my grandpa used to say, "I haven't got a pot to piss in, or a window to throw it out of." I find myself uttering those same words from time to time when the negatives and "woe-is-mes" creep in. But, if I truly remember correctly Grandpa would always finish that expression with, "but I've got you". (Funny how we tend towards a selective memory; isn't it?)
Those "woe-is-mes" have been lurking just outside the fringes of my reason lately.
How are we going to pay the mortgage?
What about Christmas?
Darn, sure wish I had that.
Boy, aren't they lucky.
You know, more of that selective memory. More of forgetting what I do have because I'm too busy wishing for what I don't have.
My sons were just here for a few days' visit from out of state. This couldn't have been more perfectly timed. Watching them, hearing their banter, remembering our history, I was reminded just how wealthy I truly am. Their presence sent the negatives down the road. In it's place settled my life's abundance: my greatest loves.
"But I've got you."
