I've been told recently that gratitude and paying attention in the moment will "hold me in good stead". I have passed on this advice without wondering what in the world?
Stead? Can you be In Stead? At Home in Stead?
Well! The New Century Dictionary clarified with the following quotes: "Fly therefore, fly this fearefull stead anon" (Faerie Queene) or, "The Souldier may not move from watchfull sted [sic]" (same Faerie Queene).
