Blessed Despite the Storms in Life

Do you ever have those days or months were it just seems like so much goes wrong and you don’t think it’s going to stop?  The last 30 days for me have been filled with health problems and sickness to a broken refrigerator and iPhone.  There have been some bad situations that I have made me really bitter and sad.  Then there are the real storms … tornadoes and hail.  It’s been a crazy month!

To be honest, these situations are nothing at all compared to other circumstances.  I am truly blessed.

I think of the people whose homes have been destroyed lately by the Oklahoma weather or our soldiers who have been away from their families for so long now.  I am reminded how there are kids who are suffering from hunger or abuse and women who are being trafficked in other parts of the world.  No, my problems are minute.

Instead of feeling down, my resolve is to remind myself daily of just how fortunate I am.  There is so much to be thankful for!  How about you?
