Have you noticed how many distractions people face today? People today are busy! With all the demands on our time and attention, it’s no wonder that it’s easy to take for granted the more subtle, less demanding parts of life and relationships. I don’t know about you, but sometimes I feel like I’m pulled in so many directions, that if something’s not screaming for my attention, it’s hard to notice it!
The good things in relationships, and the qualities that you value in other people, are often not the things that are screaming for your attention. Be careful that you don’t start to take those positive qualities of your relationships and other people for granted. Commit to being intentional about noticing these things, and then looking carefully for them on a regular basis. You may be surprised how much you have to be thankful for when you start looking!
