As I ponder what to post next, I have had a hard time getting the visions of the Haiti earthquake aftermath out of my head. Last night I stayed up past midnight watching CNN. It is all so heartbreaking.
I realize that sometimes I forget how truly blessed I am. I realize I am so spoiled! I have a wonderful husband, great kids, a comfortable place to live, food to eat, clothes to wear...I could go on and on. But first and foremost, we are together and we are healthy, we are well. The things that seem so miniscule that we take for granted on a daily basis, now seem so big and wonderful in comparison to those going through a living hell in Haiti.
My heart breaks for all those who are mourning family members and friends, all those who are hurt and unable to get treatment, all those who don't know where their friends and family are and those who know where they are buried and can't get them out.
I pray for all of them.
And as I go through the hustle and bustle of my day, rushing to birthday parties and wiping noses, I thank the Lord for my blessings.
Here are some of them. They are what keep me going and bring a smile to my face. I am hugging a little bit harder and kissing a little bit more.
I had to include the dog in my blessings! She's our "first born" and we need her as much as she needs us.
Today I hope you are blessed.
Have a good weekend!
