a little perspective…

sometimes i can get so busy and consumed with my life.

even if my life involves serving other people…it’s still a part of my life.
and sometimes when i do that, i take for granted the fact that i have so much.
i have been working on my yard a lot the last couple of days.
raking, weeding, mowing, mulching.
i really love yard work, but there were times that i was hot and sweaty, and sick of seeing dandelions!
but.
while i had to work through this to make my yard look nice…
some people in oklahoma were looking through this just to find their yard.

and this morning when i had to look in this room to find my son’s clothes
some parents were looking through this to try and find their children!
it can just blow your mind when you stop to think about it.
while i am complaining about having to clean the toilet, some people would give anything to have their bathroom back.
while i am complaining about having to load the dishwasher yet again with bowls and plates from my boys, some people would give anything just to have their little boys alive to feed.
life is short.
you have no guarantee of tomorrow.
none of us do.
what are you doing with your today?
don’t let yourself even hang around with negative, complaining friends.
spend time with your family.
let the dishes sit in the sink and go hug your kids.
put down the candy crush and go write an email telling someone how much they mean to you.
live every second like it was your last.
and pray for the people who have lost so much in oklahoma.
it helps to have a little perspective.
