While reading today, I realized that sometimes having a grateful heart and a thankful attitude toward the important things in life isn't enough. Sometimes you must stop and be thankful for the little things; for they, truly, are the bounty.
So today I remind myself to be thankful for these forgettable things:
1. Carts at the grocery store.
Imagine carrying all your groceries through the store . .
2. Mashed potatoes.
The taste, the tradition, the comfort . . .
Fashioning something useful out of tatters of time and material . . .
4. The over-eager committee-driving parents each school has on the PTA.
Lord only knows what the world would be like without them . . .
It doesn't get simpler, purer, or sweeter than that . . .
What have you forgotten to be grateful for?
