There are many things in life that we take for granted. When
the last time you were truly thankful for air, water or even a
warm meal? For many people, our lives are so full of blessing
that we forget about all of the simple things that make our
lives to much easier and better. I recently thought about just
how different our lives would be without one simple thing:
Can you imagine life without any chairs? I certainly cannot.
Think about all the places you rely on chairs to make your
comfortable and easy. Remember, for example, the many years
spent in school. Other than perhaps story time in
your time in school was spent sitting in chairs to learn. Our
lives would be very different if we had to make it through
math, science and english classes sitting on the floor. Or
think about the lunch room. Can you imagine eating lunch on
floor with all your friends each day?
When I thought about the blessing that chairs are to our
I couldn't help but think about restaurants. In some countries
in the world it is common to sit on the floor to eat. Can you
imagine going out for a fancy dinner with your family or
friends and having to sit in your nice suit or dress on the
floor? Of course not. Think of what would happen if you went
attend a formal party or wedding reception and discovered that
you would be seated on the floor, without chairs, for the
entire evening. I bet your time at the party would not last as
long as you were expecting.
If you love going to the movies as much as I do then you
appreciate the comfort of the theature chairs that you sit in
each time you enjoy a new film. Picture yourself going to the
movie theature for the next great film and having to sit in a
mass of strangers on the floor in front of the screen. Sound
strange? I agree. Next time you head into a theature and sit
the chairs smile and be thankful.
Probably the place that I take having great chairs for granted
in is my home. There is nothing better than coming home and
enjoying the newspaper in your favorite rocking chair or
reading a book in a recliner. Can you imagine your home
chairs? Mine would be quite empty and very uncomfortable.
Once you start thinking about all of the places that you enjoy
sitting on chairs it isn't hard to imagine how different our
lives would be without them. So sit down in one of your
favorite chairs, enjoy it, and be very thankful you have it
