“There are always things to miss,” said Maggie. “No matter where you are.” ~ from the book Sarah, Plain and Tall by Patricia MacLachlan
Such a simple sentiment, yet when you think on it for a bit, the Truth of it runs so deep. Life is less than perfect. In fact we were told to expect some bumps along the way (Matt 5:45 just to name one of many). And not just life and people, but circumstances too. Yet, if those people – places – things – were gone…there are things you would miss. It truly fits the old cliché “you don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone.” See the rose for the thorns. And I know it’s hard sometimes. Trust me, I know. But in the worst you can choose to cherish and find ways to be grateful in the smallest of good things.
