People waiting for their ship to come in often miss the journey along the way .Compare it to a baby’s first steps…Parents clap and cheer, taking pictures to immortalize that precious moment that will one day lead to bigger steps, and finally the big walk…right out the door and into the world.
Life is full of lots of memorable moments but sometimes we look right past them in our quest for bigger and better things. We don’t enjoy the day at the park because we are wishing we could be at Disney world . We barely taste our hamburger because we think we deserve steak. We spend our lives planning and planning for all the things that we will buy and do when our ship does comes in.
The reality is…The ship filled with life’s riches may seem like an impossible dream but if we really open our eyes and count our blessings we may realize it’s already come true.
