Enjoy the roses!

“We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon – instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today.”  ~ Dale Carnegie

I love this quote!!

How many times do we say or hear others say, “If I could just afford ______ .” “I wish I could do that.” “They are lucky/spoiled/making more money/have such a nice house/etc.”

How about this one:  “If you have food in your fridge, clothes on your back, a roof over your head and a place to sleep – you are richer than 75% of the world!”

I’ve already eaten very well today…more than once. I have a home to turn to and store my many possessions. I have utilities that provide me with more luxuries than I care to admit and I probably call them necessities.

For today – let’s not complain.  Let’s enjoy the roses.
