Today I gained some perspective. I found a forum where parents of prisoners can share thoughts and experiences. As I read through some of the posts I was so humbled by what I found. There are parents who have had kids in prison for years with no chance of ever seeing them outside of prison. There are also parents who will see, or who already have seen, a son or daughter take that last walk ever on this earth. There are elderly parents raising grandkids when they should be enjoying retirement. So, today I was given the gift of perspective. No matter what my situation has been in life, when I've looked around outside of my own little world, I've always found people who have it much worse.
Thank you, Lord, for perspective.
