Circumstances can be hard, but LIFE IS GOOD. That is the anthem of our life. When things seem unexplainable and chaotic, my husband always says this to me. And he’s right. Life IS good. It is not always easy. But when we pause to put things into perspective, there is always something to be grateful for. And gratitude. It is the things that allows us, in the words of Abraham Lincoln, to rejoice that a thorn bush has roses instead of complaining that a rose bush has thorns. Perspective is everything, isn’t it? And sometimes we must pause to see a situation or someone else in a new way…perhaps for the joy and good it can bring instead of the trouble it causes. Perhaps.
