I will be the first to admit that I sometimes get a case of "I wish I had that"! I look at my friends who all seem to have bigger homes, nicer cars, more money,etc... And, I admit, I am jealous at times. Then, I have to stop myself and realize that I am blessed beyond all words. I have a loving husband, 2 beautiful, healthy children, my health is good, a nice home and paid for cars! I have a job that I love 90% of the time. I have a God that is merciful. I have good friends who love me. We have enough money to meet our needs. I have cats that give me unconditional love. What more do I need? Yes, I am grateful for what I have!
St. Therese, the Little Flower, please pick me a rose from the heavenly garden and send it to me with a message of love. Ask God to grant me the favor I thee implore, and tell Him I will love Him each day, more and more.
