Some Perspective For a Rough Day

Today was a really, really crummy day at work.  There was lots of stress involved and I had to deal with some unpleasant stuff.  It’s all been taken care of now, which I’m very thankful for.  I really didn’t want it hanging over me  when I went to bed tonight.  At any rate, I was sitting here trying to unwind and found this post at Gather Little By Little.  I felt better after reading that.  Yes, I had to deal with some really not-fun stuff at work today, but even with all that, I’m still incredibly blessed.  The husband and I never have to worry about whether or not we’ll be able to buy food, we can always pay our bills (much as we hate doing so sometimes!), we have  a place to live, we both have jobs, and we are blessed with fantastic friends and family.  If you’re having a tough day, week, or month, try sitting down and thinking about what you do have – if you have a roof over your head, food to eat every day, and can pay your bills, you have a lot more than so, so, so many people in this world.  Be thankful for it.

    Thanks for the link. It’s so easy to get forget the bigger picture sometimes. Glad things worked out at work and glad my post was timed well!

    You’re welcome. Your post was timed perfectly. Things turned out as well as they could have (there was no good outcome…).
