53. The Little Things
The next day my wife and I took Blondie back to my alma mater for another visit. We stopped in the bookstore. To my amazement everything was reasonably priced. When I was a student, the store was run by a monk named Mark, nicknamed ‘Brother Mark-Up’ because of the prices charged.
If I itemized the cost of college, bookstore shampoo or pens weren’t a big deal. On the other hand, it was nice to know we wouldn’t be paying high prices for basic needs. I added improvements to the bookstore to my gratitude last. I wondered if there were other little improvements in my life I might not have noticed.
Today I will be grateful for little improvements in my life.
