Today I feel thankful. I worked a day shift yesterday and it seems like there is so much suffering and pain going on right now with people I know from work. (And the babies are a whole other story!)
I was talking with two friends of mine and we were discussing how when someone knows they are going to die soon, they want to spend time with loved ones, tell them how they are loved, complete things that they have always wanted to do, etc. I have really been thinking lately how we don't know when we are going to leave this life, but if we did, we would live those last days so differently. I know it's a cliche but we really should live each day like it could be our last. Especially when it comes to how we treat people, especially our loved ones. I am really going to try and keep that at the front of my mind.
I am so thankful to be healthy. I am so thankful for my "trials". They are so small compared to what they could be. I need to really focus on enjoying my life and everything I have. Good things are happening.
To my friends at work: you are in my prayers.
