How quickly we forget how well off we are…

We live in the Age of Wonders!

“Now my day is completely ruined.” Sometimes the words come out of my mouth, and sometimes I either read them or hear them from others.  In our microwave society, we demand instant gratification and intimate convenience.  In doing so we forget how well off we truly are versus the generations of people who came before us.  How much nicer would we be if we remembered to count our blessings and thank our Maker for the gift of living in a time of miracles and wonders!

If you can’t see what I’m talking about, watch this classic monologue by Louis C.K. while he was sitting in a guest chair for Conan O’Brien‘s television show.  It’ll remind you just how fortunate you really are!
