It's amazing to me how my perspective can change in a second.
A situation that at one time may have seemed super annoying and inconvenient, suddenly becomes something I wouldn't change for the world. Sometimes I get so caught up in my own life and "problems", I forget the struggles of others. Looking through someone else's eyes usually makes my petty problem seem like nothing and alot of times the problems are actually blessings. So much of the time we have so many complaints about our job, our spouse, our house, our clothes... all things that are a blessing to have in the first place. I shouldn't complain about my home, I should be grateful that I have one. I shouldn't complain about my job, I should look around and notice that they're becoming scarcer and I am blessed. Someone else might rush at the opportunity to serve in the situation that I may be currently whining about.
I'm slowly learning to not get annoyed by the sock that's been left on the floor, but to be thankful that I have the one who dropped it. Because when it's all said and done, I have a husband with a heart of gold who never intentionally did anything to hurt me and in the end, I think I can pick up a million socks and the frustration would never even come close to the love I have for him and the gratitude I feel in my heart for his presence in my life. And if that's my only complaint, I'd say I'm a pretty lucky lady. :)
