I feel like I’m getting some huge life lessons in perspective these days.
Last Monday my empathy went into over-drive. Something happened, not to me directly, but it affected my heart. I feel for someone more than words could ever express. I have a heavy heart.
The event, this tragedy… it put life into perspective.
Then my computer: Dead. Again. For the second time.
But, my family is healthy, I have a job, I have Apple Care that expires in just over two weeks.
Then silly as it may seem, I wrote a post two weeks ago… one I’d been crafting and perfecting and spending far too much time on… one that I was excited to share. It was about being a Mom. And the not-so-great moments… I wasn’t ready to post it right after I had written it, I had been holding on to it until tonight.
I was editing it and then something happened with the old computer I’m working on and BAM! The draft? Gone.
All that work… all that thought. Time is at a premium these days.
Then, I open my email and read an email from someone very, very close to me who is going through a health trial — one that I hope to never have to experience.
What’s more important? My post or her health?
Thank God for perspective.
