Isn't interesting how you can be having one the worst days...  you know: the bread doesn't rise,and/or sticks to the pan... the muffins burn... the kid(s) are unruly, whiny and disobedient... laundry (both clean & dirty) are piled... and the house is in shambles...  ??

Well, today wasn't quite a bad as ^described above^... but we were definitely having our share of struggles, and waves of temper tantrums, melt downs, & disobedience. Then I sat down at the computer to drink my coffee this morning...  and we met with the heartbreaking news from a dear [online] friend... whose sweet 3year old daughter unexpectedly went home to Jesus, yesterday.  Suddenly all my trials, hurdles and frustrations - which seemed so significant, only moments before -  suddenly became trivial and greatly paled in comparison to what this sweet family is going through.

It's all a matter of perspective, I suppose...
