I love pretty things. I love beautiful things. I love the things that allow me to do my work, most especially computers. But if these things were to be taken away, I would survive. Not happily, at least not at first. But I would survive.
What matters to you most? Chances are it's not a four bedroom/four bathroom house. Chances are it's not a beautifully landscaped yard. Chances are it's not even a collection of designer purses.
I'm betting it's what I call the trifecta of happines: faith, family, friends. They matter above all else.
So, for today, I am grateful for the trifecta of happiness.
