Have You Ever...
Have you ever built something up in your mind....maybe a gift you thought you were going to receive from someone or a party you were going to...only to feel disappointed when you received a different gift or the party wasn't as you planned it in your mind?
Have you ever passed up on an opportunity because you thought something better might come along? That old saying...the grass in greener on the other side of the fence comes to mind, but the grass may not be greener. You may think the other side of the fence will bring happiness until you look back...
I believe at one time or another we have all done it. I wonder why? Why don't we accept or are our expectations too high?
I have found the greatest surprises or happiness when I least expect it. I try not to expect...try to be happy with the 'now' and don't take things for granted.
I knew someone that when her husband sent her flowers for no reason, she was annoyed they weren't a larger bouquet. I was floored...how could she not be happy that her husband was thinking of her and sent her these beautiful flowers to say I love you...she wasn't happy because her blessing didn't arrive in the package she wanted. I think her blessing was having a man who loved her and wanted to show it in this lovely way.
We should never miss out on a blessing, happiness or opportunity because it is not packaged the way we expected or imagined...
