I was thinking how "blessed" must really be paired always with "grateful"; My neighbor yesterday saw me with my bag of groceries and said, nicely, teasingly, "Well, you'll be able to eat at least for today!"

Funny, I was thinking at the time about the hamburger in my groceries, and wishing we could afford to go out that night for steak at the restaurant.

I want to learn to be blessed ----and grateful; enough for today; content for today; grateful. - Dorothy Frances

  1. So true! Thank you for reminding me to be grateful. I'm wishing I didn't just complain about the leftovers I ate for lunch! :) -Lauren
