It's so very true! In my own home we deal every single day with a major health issue, along with the myriad of issues involving family. My faith gets me through every day, and the knowledge that there are people who care, friends who love me. But it's not easy in the least. But... I see people in my line of work every day who are dealing with things so much bigger than the issues I deal with at home. I see news stories and posts on facebook about people who have it so much harder. And I know so many are facing these trials without faith, without knowing Heavenly Father. I can't even begin to imagine how hard that must be. Life really IS good. In fact, it's pretty dang great! :) <3

Amen! Preach it!

Sophia, I had a big trial last summer: breast cancer: stage 1. I had a lumpectomy and I am OK now. This big trial helped me understand what you are saying every day: Life is good! You cannot believe how many young kids, young women in their twenties or thirties I met at the hospital and whose situation was much worse than mine, I didn't need chemo and my radiation was just 3 weeks, so I considered myself blessed than it wasn't worse. As you say, these is always something to smile and there are lots of people around us who have many more problems than us. Thanks for this reminder!

Life is what you make it - the good, the bad, the ugly and the beautiful. Each moment is meant to be felt in the soul. A journey that must be traveled.

Thanks Sophia, we could all use a reminder. I try to do that on a regular basis. (I mean try to realize that my petty problems are in No comparison to many of those people out there.) But we have our pity party days. Even on a day Like today that I feel like complete hammered beans after serveral days of feeling like this, I have to remind myself that at least I'm not in the hospital, my kids are healthy. And My parents are coming so hopefully they can help out... I'm one of the lucky ones. I think it's all about attitude.
