Today I put aside my “when this happens” and my “if only this could be” and my “when things get better” and my “soon as I have this.”
I am going to harvest what I now have, gather all the many gifts that are already mine.
I am going to observe what has been put in my granary of my heart and marvel at the abundance.
I will stand before this heap of blessings and take a long grateful look. I will say farewell to my “when” and be thankful for what is.
