I am having a terribly grumpy, tired, cold, get-out-of-my-way morning. Started around 3:00. Gave up, got up worked on a project for Tink's sports banquet I THOUGHT I had done, but it was all messed up, FOR THE SECOND TIME!, finished it, woke everyone else up, no one wanted anything easy for breakfast, Tall Guy left early to haul corn, so I had to go out and feed the 4-H calves, now I'm eating breakfast, and I gained two pounds last week kind of morning!
Then I see pictures of the devastation still being gone through in southern Indiana
And I remember that my friend Leontine is starting yet another round of cancer treatment with a new drug today.
And I think of my friend Kim reading about reconstructive surgery options after a mastectomy and waiting for her gene tests to come back.
And I find it....
I wish it didn't have to cost others so much to remind me of what I have.
So I look up and say, "I'm sorry. Please forgive my selfish rant this morning. Please be with those who need you much more than I do today. Hold them, let them know that they are not alone, that You are always with them to guide, heal, and comfort us in a way that no one else can. Amen"
And me... Well.... I will take a breath, eat my breakfast, and get over the crappy little stuff that doesn't mean so much, troubles and worries that others would trade me for in a heart beat.
