I am not going to turn this into a long post on the topic of taking things for granted. Lets just say it can include most things in our daily lives. I am not just speaking of material things or essentials. Yes I even took that gallon of chocolate milk for granted, that I can not now find. Making it now with plain (and nothing is plain anymore) milk and choc. syrup. Not for myself, for the most part, but for my grandchildren. Three of my grandchildren will be coming over two or three times a week at least until the 6 year old goes back to school. Daycare was is a scary option for my daughter ……… THE NURSE. Their dad works in IT for hospitals keeping the computers running. Thank God they both have jobs yet.
I have learned or have been reminded that just walking outside, breathing fresh air has been taken for granted. I don’t usually enjoy going grocery shopping, still don’t, especially now but it was just good to go somewhere outside the confines of these walls. No, I am not taking my home for granted. Thankful! The next time I go fishing (in a few days I hope) will be beautiful, out in the great outdoors, all alone. I’ll share the lake or river bank, but will find my own secluded spot. Nice. Thank you lord for all I have and all I have taken for granted.
Stay safe and healthy world (friends).
