Pillows, I'm so grateful for them. This morning I thanked God for two to put behind my back so I could sit in bed Veteran's Day morning thanking God for all those who sacrificed not just familiar, comfortable things from home, but gave up life itself - the ultimate, unspeakably great act of caring for others. I pray that these precious veterans are now in the company of God's angels.
Shortly afterwards I demonstrated irritation instead of kindness, when I had to wait patiently for my husband to finish using the computer so I could begin to write. How quickly life can be reduced to inconveniences, trivial and petty. I must reword that. How petty and trivial I can allow myself to become.
Lord, keep my mind grateful, keep my eyes on acts of value and valor.
Blessings on your day!
