Life is like a blanket too short. You pull it up and your toes rebel, you yank it down and shivers meander about your shoulder; but cheerful folks manage to draw their knees up and pass a very comfortable night.
This quote is about adapting yourself, making the best of what you have, and you will be happy. Its a way of approaching life's problems. Life isn't going to turn out exactly as you want it to, so you adjust and make the best out of what you have. If the blanket is too short, you can't make it longer, so you scoot your knees up so it can cover your whole body.
Until you make peace with who you are, you will never be content with what you have.
We really don’t need to have it all. We don’t need to do it all. We don’t need to be it all. We just need to have the courage to do what we can, and be happy with that. We can choose to be content, just as we can choose to be happy, and if we choose to be content, we will be happy.
The picture is of one of my daughter's dogs. He always loved sitting by the campfire in one of the chairs and he loved his blanket too.
You're blessed when you're content with just who you are—no more, no less. That's the moment you find yourselves proud owners of everything that can't be bought
Matthew 5:5, The Message
Take the Life you are given and know you are blessed.
