I learned this from a dear friend who is wheelchair bound. She made me look at hers and mine, be they ever so small in comparison and go on with my life.

For the longest time I thought everything had to be perfect in order for me to be happy. One day my great granddaughter fell and scraped her beautiful leg. She looked at me and said "It's OK Mamaw it will be fine." Then it hit me like a ton of bricks. Out of the mouth of a child to wake me up. Thank you Hailee.

I try to practice this all the time now. Some days are better than others but I'm getting there. This quote is wonderful and is going on my bulletin board.

So true! I need to keep that thought to help keep up my battle with depression and emotional eating!

This reminds me of a quote I heard from Billy Graham's wife, Ruth. She said an elderly farmer once told her the way he maintained his happy spirit was to "make the most of all that comes and the least of all that goes." This may not be exact, but it's approximately right! Wish I could live this.
