As I left the house this morning to take our old junker car to the repair shop, there was a cool breeze and the sun was shining brightly. Despite the bumps in life's road recently, a feeling of peace washed over me. With all of the trials and tribulations in life, the sun is still shining. Sometimes the constants in life give comfort and a bit of security. I felt like all was right in my world. The little stuff is just that - little stuff. It's a good idea every once in a while to step back and look at the big picture; especially with the economy the way it is at this point in time. I started to think about how my life is going right now. We have a steady income, a roof over our heads, healthy food, a bed to sleep in, nice clothes to wear, shoes on our feet, a car to drive, a t.v., a cell phone etc. I know that a large section of the rest of the world lives in poverty, so I'm thinking that our corner of the world is pretty great. How can I complain when we have so much and others have so little? A light bulb moment! I've got a good life. The sun is shining on me and perhaps I should shine that light on those around me.
