Blinded By The Light

There's a problem with abundance. In living with it—and amongst it—there's a risk I will stop seeing it as a thing of beauty—and the gift that it is. The very real risk with abundance is I'll take it for granted—either by expecting it to always be there, and/or by not acknowledging its presence fully in my life.

I am deciding I know exactly what You think about it. Except every ...
