PUTTING IT ALL INTO PERSPECTIVE

Did you wake up with a few aches and pains today?
Was your coffee weak or your eggs runny?
Was traffic slow on your way in to work?
Long line at the check out?
Did your favorite TV program fail to record?
Did you complain?
Next time you face these big daily problems . . . .
. . . . think about Japan
. . . . just for a moment.
Then I dare you to complain.

Let's all say a prayer instead - and be thankful for all that we have.

Debs how right you are, we moan too easily in this western world about such trivia.

Amen! My thoughts have been similar, lately. Thanks for another reminder. We must count our blessings.

Thanks to each of you for your comments.
We cannot imagine the unbearable loss Japan has suffered - and we just have to realize how insignificant some of our problems can be when put into relationship of everything else going on in the world.
