We Take Things For Granted

We get so used to what we have.  We miss the big things.  We miss the little things.  People, places, and things are just there and so we take things for granted.  Everything becomes all too familiar, rather than unique and special.

Sometimes we are so inundated with everything coming our way in a day, we don't stop the time to see what is there.  We don't notice what someone special to us, does during the day.  We don't notice that special sound or sight or smell around us in the small moments.  All too often, we take things for granted.

When was the last time you said thank-you to someone close to you.  When was the last time you thanked a random stranger or gave them a smile.  When was the last time you let someone know how great of a job they did or just how much they mean to you.  All too often, we take things for granted.


There is so much happening around us in our day.  We often miss so much of it from the birds chirping outside to a butterfly zooming past us.  It may be a cool breeze on our face, or the warmth of the sun invigorating us.  It may be a cloud as it changes shape in the sky that gives us a moment of pause.  All too often, we take things for granted.

Let us be thankful for all we have for it is far greater than we see.  Let us be thankful for the tiny moments in life that we often overlook.  Let us be thankful for the people in our life that are always there for us and we often fail to recognize.  Let us be thankful for all that we have because in some places of the world, they would consider our meager lifestyle to be as living like a king to them.

All too often, we take things for granted.  Why not try something different today and in the days ahead by noticing those small moments and the people in our life.  Why not try something different today by giving honor and love in a real way, not just as a fleeting thought in our mind.  Let us not take things for granted.
