Life lessons. (Not a "woe is me" post. Seriously, it's not.)

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.

Perspective.

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.

Not auto-saved.

GONE. Seriously?

Heavy sigh.

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?

Perspective.

Ah. Life.

Thank God for perspective.
