W is for Want

It wasn't that long ago that I could have written a three page list of things I wanted.
  • chocolate leather riding boots
  • Buttery gorgeous Coach bag
  • FLIP video camera
  • trendy cotton scarf
  • CHI flat iron
  • 800 thread count sheets

You get it. Lots and lots of things. And then I decided I didn't care anymore. And I don't. That much. I haven't given up on that one Coach bag, but generally don't want anything more than I have.

In our car on a Sunday afternoon I know that I have every single thing I could want. He loves me, respects me and shares the care of our sweet children. They're healthy, happy and still think we're great. The car has four tires, a running engine and carries us safely to our activities. We park in the garage of our home that's warm, clean and comfortable.

It would be dishonest to say that I don't wish for new lip gloss every other Thursday and a beautiful new piece of jewelry on our anniversary, but I want for nothing. How blessed I am. Truly, truly blessed.

It's good to want things, but even better to appreciate what we have. There's also a level of priority - while I want that Coach bag (boy do I want it), I'd first spend the money on clothes. LOL - priority.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and thanks for the follow. Following back. :)
