The bigger picture
Just when I get a bit wound up about some trivial nonsense, God gives me a little tap on the shoulder and says, hey wake up, look around, there is suffering in the world, get over yourself. Here was the little tap I got this morning when yet another storm rolled through. Gerry's brand new Subaru is bashed under the tree that came down across our driveway. This has brought to mind all of the people in Japan without homes, the people in the South that have had enough of the storms already and now the midwest. So my thoughts are with all those folks this morning that have lost way more than I have. I am blessed to have what I have. We are lucky, this tree could have headed straight for our bedroom window as we slept. We have become money sieves, it goes out faster than it comes in, like water running through a sieve, but we are healthy and happy and well fed. That should be enough. So peace everyone, thanks for your support. I know I got defensive about my work yesterday, but it is work that I am proud of and I felt like defending it. Moving on to deal with the car now. Back later..... gotta find a chain saw to cut up fire wood for next year.
