Why it's good...

We really are living the good life, you guys.

You will find imperfections if you look for them.  Floors are dirty.  Babies are cranky.  Dishes are overflowing.  Laundry is beckoning.  

But bellies are full.  Fingers are intertwined.  Toes are warm.  Love abounds.  

Even if those things were all that we had, they would still be an embarrassment of riches.  Because so many tiny hearts around the world can only dream of a table full of food, a warm place to sleep, and a hand to hold.  

So whatever imperfections are clouding your vision . . . let them go.  You could focus on the weeds, but then you'd miss the flowers.  

Today is the day for flower-hunting, y'all.  

Look around, and I'll bet you'll see that you're standing a field of them.
