I had been nurturing a case of the "poor me's" this past weekend. Worrying and fretting over things I can't control. Then I thought of all of the wonders and pleasures in my life. There are so many struggling in the world with unimaginable pain and sorrow. How dare I feel unhappy about my petty problems? I have a husband who loves me, food on the table, more than adequate shelter, two healthy children attending college and family and friends to share in all of this abundance.
Just a ten minute stroll down the road across from my house is a breathtaking view of the north bend in the Ohio river. A lone sailboat was floating down the river in the sun. Sometimes we travel along feeling alone and become so wrapped up in that thought process we ignore all the wonderful scenery around us.
Have a Monday without measure, P.
