Yesterday, we were in church and the pastor made reference to the proverbial glass that is half full or half empty depending upon the outlook of the beholder.
The pastor asked (rhetorically) Is your glass half full or half empty?
I said, “The glass is always full.”
Pat elbowed me in the ribs.
But, seriously, the glass is always full but we are conditioned to only see the water without acknowledging the presence of the atmosphere. Even if the water is representing the good things in your life, the air that fills up the void has its purposes as well.
Apparently, being thankful is the indicator of being satisfied with life and I agree wholeheartedly. Having a heart of gratitude along with the people I love and who love me in return fill my cup to the top.
Even when I get an elbow in the ribs.
