This was a funny sign up in Harpers Ferry yesterday, Thanksgiving Day.
Outside this restaurant, it says, “Only OPEN Place in Town, GREAT Food.”
I suppose if it’s the only game in town, then whatever food they have is by definition “great”-compared to going hungry that is.
Life is very much like this–where everything is relative.
If I have too many choices–how do I choose?
Whatever I choose, I may second guess myself that maybe another one would’ve been better.
It’s like when I go out with my daughter to eat, somehow whatever she orders is always better than what I got!
But when choice is limited or non-existent, well then “beggars can’t be choosey.”
Essentially, your happy with what you have– perhaps, something is often better than nothing.
But really it’s much more than that, because if you look closely at others, you realize that what you have is actually a pretty darn good lot in life–so don’t be envious, jealous, or be too quick to want to change places with your neighbor.
Obviously, this was a very apropos sign for Thanksgiving–where we need to learn to be grateful for everything we have in life.
It is our basket, and we wouldn’t want to trade it for anything in the world (and if you did, you’d be sorry afterwards). 😉
