'Enough is a lot!'

Sometime ago I read a charming story that makes me smile every time I think of it. It's about a little boy who went shopping with his mother. She was being very careful with her money, buying only what was absolutely necessary. As they strolled through the store, the little boy saw many interesting items. He asked his mom again and again if they could buy something. Invariably, she told him, "We can't afford it." The boy persisted. Finally, he came upon something that looked reasonably inexpensive and tried one more time. His mom checked the price tag and said, "Well, I think we have enough." He looked at her and said, "Mom, enough is a lot!"

Christ activates my thought to put off worry and fear, preparing me for hearing just what is needed.
