But as I felt a bit of depression creeping in, I was reminded that my problem was minor compared to some. Within a few weeks I learned that a good friend of mine was diagnosed with breast cancer again (something she thought she had beaten years ago), three friends as well as my sister were dealing with major health problems in their family, and two other friends experienced the heartbreaking loss of their mothers. I could envision all the prayers circling the stars, trying hard to penetrate the dark cloud that seemed to be hovering in my world. And that’s when I knew I could put the balance back in my life. I just had to find the right perspective. Everyone experiences problems in life, but we have to rise above, keep praying, keep moving forward, and put things in perspective.
So good-bye January! May February bring a rainbow of health and happiness to everyone!
