Live

“I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing.” ~ Agatha Christie

~~~
 
Many times while walking & sometimes dragging through difficulty I have found myself, though in a dark place, still reaching out in gratitude. For all the things that I can & should be grateful for.
 
I understand that being chipper or trying to crack a smile some days can feel almost impossible. I get it.
But blessings still abound. You may just have to squint a little.
 
Are we alive? Sheltered? Fed?
Then we have much more than so, so many of our brothers & sisters do across this wide world.
 
We may just need to shift a little – or a lot, to re-focus.
On what matters.
On what we have vs. what we don’t.
 
Whether abased or abounding –
To be content in all things is priceless.
I want that.
I am inching towards it more each day.
Join me.
 
Much love y’all – and more living,
 
Bonnie
