So many things we take for granted are no longer available to us right now: where to go out to eat or drink, the chance to meet up with friends, even toilet roll in the supermarket!
I was Skyping a friend the other day and they thought that a world-changing event like this pandemic could be a paradigm shift for many people.
Times like this can move us to gratitude for the little things in life we often take for granted. But it is a choice. Once the lockdown measures ease, it will be easy to return to our old way of thinking if we do not choose to be mindful of the plentiful things many of us have in our lives.
Is there something in your life you have been taking for granted?
