“If everything doesn’t add up, you probably don’t see everything.”
From a nearly invisible virus to the great resignation to the erratic economy, efforts to make sense of it all seem nonsensical. And what about intermittent lower back pain or the difference between an iPhone 13 and 14? None of it adds up.
And then there’s the upcoming election – voted the statement most likely to inspire arguments for the next two years. Ugh.
If the iPhone comment distracted you, c’mon back. The only thing you missed is people trying to figure out which party I support. Or is it which one I hate? Doesn’t matter. Seriously.
Delightfully, several trees defied tradition by going crimson. Others flashed yellow. Outdoor temperatures fell below the shiver point, causing the furnace to roar and claim indoor dominance over the cold. And this morning’s coffee tasted better than usual.
Because when everything seems messy, I can still count blessings. When noticed, they add up just fine.
Ancient wisdom says: Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.
