I Don’t NEED Anything

Yesterday.

Walking to work.

I was crossing the street after checking the free stack at the local library.

That was when it hit me:

I don’t NEED anything!

I really, really don’t.

I have a roof over my head that I can easily afford even if Katie moved out tomorrow.

I have clothes on my back. A surplus, actually, that I will use up before I actively acquire more.

I have money in the bank.

I have a job that pays my bills.

I have a way to indulge my passion for writing, a way that allows me to potentially help others in some small way.

I have a quiet, peaceful life.

I am okay.

I am really, truly okay.

It feels good to know that I don’t need anything. Oh sure, I have things that I want.

But there is nothing that I really, truly need.

I am so thankful for this blessing.
