I had a friend and her little girl over last week. Of course we were sitting there chatting while our two little girls played with toys. Thirty minutes into them being here, I noticed that my daughter wanted every toy that her friend was already playing with. She would grab it from her, play with it for a couple seconds, then throw it aside.
I began to think, "Isn't it something that from the time are little babies until now, we always want what someone else has." The more I think about it, I realize that is what I do - I want what someone else has. I get it. Then it still doesn't make me happy.
Now I need to learn how to be happy with what I have, so that I can teach my little girl to be grateful for what she has.
God really does teach us lessons as moms!
And I saw that all labor and all achievement spring from man's envy of his neighbor. This too is meaningless, a chasing after the wind. (Ecc 4:4)
