“If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough.” – Meister Eckhardt
We live in a fast-paced, microwave, drive-thru, Buy-It-Now society.
It’s a society that has forgotten to be truly grateful for the things around it. We only tend to be grateful for things when we no longer have them.
Think of the sense of relief you gain when you just get over an illness, and are so thankful that your turbulent tummy has now settled. Consider how appreciative you are when those tests come back clear. Or when the speeding camera doesn’t flash. Or when you finally find your lost child in the supermarket.
