Every now and then I like to reflect on the things going on around me or in my life. My mom read me an entry from her personal journal, this evening. My mom has never shared anything like that, with me, before and I really thank her for letting me be apart of her personal thoughts. It really made me think. She really blessed me with some insight on situations and how we need to react to them.
Some kids were in a car accident, over the weekend, in my area. It's really impacting the community and many of the young kids I know. The article, about the crash, can be read here.
I guess my moms journal entry, the death of Baby Ethan, this car accident... and other situations in my life are just really making me think. Many people can see these sad events and blame God. I UNDERSTAND wanting to blame God... and I even find myself sad and hurt that God allows these things to happen. However, I take comfort in knowing that he has a reason for ALL of us on Earth- some of us just fulfill our purpose before others. HOW fortunate are those who DO! We are all still here because we have yet to fulfill our purpose- whatever that might be.
I'm not really sure where this is going. I am just so thankful for life. I am so thankful for a healthy family. I am thankful for wonderful friends. I am thankful for knowing God. I am thankful.... just thankful.
Asking why isn't the answer. Act. We need to act and do! We need to love one another and we need to be thankful for each day we have with the ones we love. And I am. I am so thankful.
So- thank you dear friends and family! You are all wonderful people to me and I am so blessed to have you all! :)
Smile- it's a beautiful day!
