Friday, 22 February 2008 - Ongoing lesson

Dear God:

Today, I am thankful for an ongoing lesson.

If you realize that you have enough,
You are truly rich.

~Lao-Tzu (translated by Stephen Mitchell)

You can never get enough of what you don't need to make you happy.
~Eric Hoffer

This is my ongoing lesson: to make do with what I have (and, I have a lot). I simply tell myself, "enough already" when I'm tempted to buy something I want but don't really need. Two simple but magical words that work for me.

For this blessing, I am grateful.
