Good Morning!


Yesterday while at the grocery store, I paid $3.99 a pound for a tomato and almost $7.00 for a gallon of organic milk!


I know that because of fuel costs that grocery prices have been gradually increasing but somehow it didn't really sink in until I was wandering the aisles of the produce section.


Once the shock wore off, I did what I so often do, and asked: What's the gift in this? I quickly realized that by paying as much per pound for my tomatoes as I used to for meat, that I would experience a deeper appreciation that evening when enjoying my tomato-topped salad. I knew that I was being blessed with yet another opportunity to pay closer attention to each precious moment and to appreciate the abundance in my life.


As Americans we are often gluttonous in our consumption. In our fast-paced lives it's easy to lose sight of just how very lucky we are. Just as Al Gore helped us become better stewards for our planet, perhaps higher prices at the gas pumps and grocery stores (and just about everywhere else for that matter) will gently (or not so gently) nudge us into a deeper appreciation for the wealth we are so lucky to have.


I've often read how residents of some of our world's poorest countries possess an inner happiness that defies their humble surroundings. As Americans we have become numb to our abundance and often take it for granted. Of course, I realize that not everyone in our country is blessed with a full pantry, but I am confident that most of us, thankfully, cannot remember going without a meal or going to bed hungry.


What might happen if you took more time this week to pay attention to your surroundings and consciously made a greater effort to give thanks? What gifts might a deeper appreciation for your life bring?


Have an appreciative week,
