Tomorrow is not promised to any of us!
The google turned up some really sad news about one of them and it made my chest hurt just thinking about how great a guy he is and how devastated I know he is over the loss.
It reminded me how blessed I am to still have my parents, even if they are crazy bed bugs.
It reminded me how blessed I am to be in fairly good health. Some people didn't wake up this morning. Others woke up, but are in great pain.
It reminded me how blessed I am to be able to do renovations to my house when some people are losing their homes and/or have nowhere to live.
It reminded me how blessed I am to have a job where I am paid well, appreciated and thought of enough to be included in some key strategic meetings about the future of the organization.
I called a friend recently in the middle of the night because I was just so upset and I needed to talk to HER. Why? She has a faith-based life and is one of the few people I know who can make sugar out of shit. I needed her to find some sugar in my shit. When I got off the phone, I went to bed and slept like a baby. I am blessed to have that friend.
One of my goals this year is to be a better person. This means being more gracious when I might usually snap with impatience. Being more generous when I might otherwise opt to be stingy.
It also means recognizing everyday that I am blessed.
Have a great day y'all! ::waves::
