November 5--Counting Preference

Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted.  --Albert Einstein

    That's some genius material for our November theme of wisdom. There is a lot that we count that ultimately doesn't matter--our possessions, Facebook friends, bank account, vehicle fleet, and time, to name a few. That is the "can't take it with you" stuff.
    "Everything that counts" is what makes life worth living--family, friends, love, meaningful vocation, health, a good attitude, faith, hope, beauty, nature, life experience--none of which lend themselves to counting. 
    Even though I am a "numbers nerd" and I love counting, I'll take the things that cannot be counted every time.
