The Big Things in Life.....Like my toe
While I was busy breaking my toe, my brother in law received his PhD., my husband received a skin graft on the bottom of his foot and is in a full cast, my youngest daughter is on day 12 in a physc hospital, my addict son was kicked out of his girlfriends house, my dear friends brother was hit and killed crossing the street, another friend went out and smoked crack, my boss was diagnosed with stage IV breast cancer, my husbands great aunt died....all of it happened this week......but my toe hurts.
None of them will find any relief in an ugly shoe.
Today, I will wear my ugly shoe thing and hopefully my pain will lessen enough for me to be of encouragement to those around me suffering. I can't fix everyone but I can pray for them and offer compassion and a helping hand if I'm needed. I can give love.....no matter how my toe feels.
