Perspective is an interesting thing. I was reminded of this as I was driving back from one of my jobs. I was somewhat introspective - evaluating the nature of my good mood.

It was self-seeking, I'm sure. You know.... figure out the elements involved in feeling good and they can be replicated. Theoretically. My mood, like the weather outside, was a bit of sunshine after a week or so of rain. Not that I was sad, particularly, but I was apparently trapped (again) in my schedule.

And, as I was attempting to distill the active ingredients of Joy and Peace, I laughed. My schedule isn't any freer this week than last - really. It will lull briefly around Thanksgiving - as much as a schedule can lull with two birthday sleep-over parties in a month. It will pick up again and then lull around Christmas. It's the nature of the beast.

So, the difference? My attitude. My perspective.

Focusing again on gratitude.

"Thank You, God....."
