Instead of whining that I do not have the finances to go out and purchase just what I want from the store, I concentrate on how I have a warm place to live, and a cupboard full of items to cook filling meals. Instead of indulging in feelings of loneliness, I revel in being loved.

Any day can be turned into a holiday; a holiday is any day on which people lay aside their ordinary duties and cares. Natalie wrote a great prayer and is mine for this hump day, “Father, help me today minimize what is minimal and maximize that which is magnificent.”
