"Lord save us all from old age and broken health and a hope tree that has lost the faculty of putting out blossoms."
~ Mark Twain ~
We want what we don't have
resistance to things as they are
gives us some kind of distorted hope for the future,
but it robs us of appreciation in the moment
and joy in the day.
If I can open to it, there is plenty happening right here and now to give me great satisfaction.
