Easy Living

Here’s something I was thinking about yesterday at lunch. I truly believe God drops these thoughts in my head from time to time to give me a right perspective and keep me on track.

Before all this cancer stuff started, I used to think my life was hard, what with family responsibilities, work responsibilities, church stuff, yard and house upkeep, writing stuff, and other things that popped up from time to time and demanded my time and energy. Life was hectic and busy.

You know what, though? You know what God showed me yesterday? When all this cancer treatment is over, the weekly doctor’s visits, the nuisance chemo pump, the ileostomy, the weird and ill-feeling side effects, the uncertainty, blah, blah, blah, and my life settles back into what I would consider “normal”, whatever that is anymore, it’s going to seem really easy. I realize just how blessed I was (and still am to even be given the opportunity to notice something like this). And even with what I’m going through now I should be counting my blessings.

How’s that for a shot of perspective?

Wherever you are in life, whatever you’re going through . . . count your blessings.
