This week my normal everyday life has had quite the reality check. One of my friends is going through a trying time. I can't imagine how she feels and I'm still trying to figure out how best to support her. Please keep the prayers coming.
This week has given me a little (ok, a lot of) perspective. I should focus more of my energy on important things (even if they are small) - like making sure I call my parents and sisters often, making sure I am thankful for the wonderful people in my life that love and support me, and making sure that I stop every once in a while to stop and "smell the roses".
I suggest you take a minute today, take a nice, deep, cleansing breathe, and count your blessings - I know I will.
