If I had three arms, do you suppose I’d want four?

How many times have I tried to carry more than my two hands can hold?  How many times I have said, “If I only had another arm…”
So, the question is, ‘would I really be satisfied with three or would I then wish for four?’

The truth is that we can always think of things that we want more of…
more time
more money
more hands
more friends
more food (I’m thinking chocolate)

So, I may want more, but do I really need more?
Perhaps 2013 is the year to simply grateful for what I already have….

  1. A simple and powerful post. For me, gratitude is really at the centre of my faith and my life. God has already given me all that I need – Godself.
