It always amazes me, that something always happens to place things in perspective. I, like many other people can get bogged down by “ things.”. Work that has to get done, software that is not working right, overseas tech help that speaks with an accent that makes their words indecipherable… children… parents… you get my point. Things that are just not going as you would wish, and sometimes it can make you feel frustrated and blue. Today, while walking my princess, Jenny, the loaner dog, I met a neighbor who relayed information to me which made me feel ashamed for ruing the things which were weighing on my mind. Another neighbor, who is a person of truly pure heart and actions was in the hospital, with some serious medical issues. This woman has no family here at all, so unless some kind Samaritan were of a mind to help her, she has no safety net, no moral support, no one to reassure her. There is no one who is able to spend the night in the hospital with her ensure she is provided with proper care. No one who is there based on the sharing of history of life with each other.
There are so many things which can be taken for granted in life, one of those things is the benefit of family. Family is a very precious gift. In the spirit of clarity, I would like to say, that not all “family” is in bloodline, some are chosen family, but meet the same criteria of bloodline family. Knowing you can pick up the phone any time of the day or night and pick a number to call where someone would be there at a drop of the hat is priceless. There are so many people who do not have that. No family is perfect, and Lord knows there is always some sort of conflict of ideas or personalities. But if you are lucky enough to have the caliber of family where those differences are just the “sides” not the main course, then you my friend are a lucky person. Life is funny, it seldom goes as you would have planned. Many are the things that happen that would render someone frustrated beyond all words. Just remember, no matter what problem you have, there is someone out there who has it worse. Please know, I am not trying to minimalize anybody’s particular plight, I get caught up in the mundane miseries as much as anyone, but today was a reminder to me that if you pay attention to what you do have, what you don’t have might not seem so bad.
