- gotten upset about my finances
- whined because I'm not happy with my current body weight
- complained about my hair
Yesterday, I found out that a girl who was a KD with me at State just lost her mom to cancer only a few weeks after giving birth to her mom's first grand baby. In addition, a coworker of mine who got pregnant after struggling with infertility for YEARS, just lost her baby yesterday at 38 weeks. 38 weeks.
WHY? Why was that woman's life taken before she got to experience what it was really like to be a grandmother?
WHY? Why did that couple who so desperately wanted to hold their baby girl and experience parenthood, have to go through such an unimaginable ordeal?
While I believe everything does happen for a reason, it's hard to look at these particular situations and understand why they had to happen.
Today I'm saddened for these 2 families and quickly realizing that those things that bothered me a few days ago, suddenly seem so so very unimportant.
Please add these particular families to your prayer list today. And hopefully, you'll look around today and be thankful for the things and people around you, and ignore the things that are not-so-important. I know I am.
