God hands me little reality checks, and I need them. Lately I've gotten a series of them, gently reminding me that things could be much worse and to be thankful for what I have. I don't know about you but I never get one little reality check at a time, it seems when it rains it pours.
Sometimes I feel like I'm standing still just observing my life and so many around me are going through something so difficult and I'm helpless. I stand there with a heavy heart, empty hands that are clinched in prayer yet I feel so helpless. Parents are struggling with their children's illnesses (cancer) while trying to manager their own (cancer). Marriages are failing apart, two of my co-workers are in the middle of nasty divorces as is a close friend. I could go on and on, my heart breaks for friends/co-workers etc.
I don't consider where I am in my life perfect but I have so much to be thankful for....and it's time to be mindfully thankful each day.
Today I am thankful for my son's health and my God's grace.
2 Corinthians 12:9
“My grace is sufficient for you."
