maintaining perspective

My parents went on a ten-day cruise
and asked me to take them to the airport in their car
so we would have it to drive while they were gone.

Having managed with one car for quite some time by that point,
I spent the week-and-a-half trying to maintain my perspective
on this newly acquired freedom!

I tried to maintain a grateful appreciation for a momentary gift to celebrate,
and not give in to a resentful, covetous desire to possess.

It’s a challenge!

Though I’ve been glad to notice I miss walking.
