Taking things for granted
Have you ever seen a UFO?
I think I did...when I was very young I saw something in the sky, but looking back it was probably the imaginings of a child who had just watched Wednesday evening's episode of "Sightings".
Another time, quite recently, I was looking out at the clouds coming over the horizon from my balcony at night. The clouds were thick and you couldn't see anything through them, but that evening a bright light seemed to appear in front of the cloud and then recede into it again.
I sometimes think the things you believe in and most would like to see never become apparent to you. They are something that you take for granted, like a new bud on your African Violet, so you don't take notice.
I want to look around more, notice more, appreciate more, and stop taking things for granted.
