Have we as a society become to focused on the count? Who’s leading the election in the plls? Which way did the stock market go? What is your child’s GPA? Which sports team are they on, did they get the lead in a play? What is their SAT score?
As a society we are ready to go to the next moment. We could count our money and wonder what the person lives next to us or in the next cubicle is making.
When do we stop and count the non-material things life? Celebrating out spouses and children’s success while consoling them through adversity. Counting each moment, smile and laughter from the family we create first and then others around us that are most important The count of meal, beautiful sunset, or even an incredible cloud formation. Counting our blessings is truly what makes life happy.
