Compare and Despair!

I’ve written before about my fascination with birds in flight. I often wonder what it would be like to fly (minus the airplane). I find myself envying the birds. However, if birds are capable of complex thought, they probably look at us and envy the fact that we can hop in a car and drive to the grocery store!

Better to be thankful for what we have than envious of what others have. Or as I hear on occasion, “compare and despair.”
