A Quick Drive By Quote For Ya

As you can tell, I have not been around this week. We've had a really nutty couple of weeks with a family member in and out of emergency and hospital several times, so my brain is mush and I just haven't had time to blog. But I found this quote and it really struck me so here ya go:

"We have been given an absolute armload full of blessings and gifts from God. But instead of appreciating or even paying attention to what we've been given, we often pitch a fit and drop everything to run after the one thing we want."

Dr. Gregory L. Jantz
pg. 157-158

P. S. This book is well worth the read and study. I've gotten so much out of it (my review here, scroll to #38).

Sorry to hear of your relative having medical difficulties! Thanks for taking time out to share this quote - it's so true! We focus on the "have not" instead of the "haves"!
