Being thankful for small problems.

Lately, I have been reminded every day of how very small my problems are.  And how thankful I am for that fact.  It has been and continues to be a very tough year for my friends - which is hard on my heart, as I feel frustrated and helpless on their behalf. 

I am a naturally skeptical person, but I have come to believe in the power of positive thought.  It can have an almost magical effect - sometimes physically, sometimes soulfully.  I would appreciate it if you all would send some positive thoughts to my friend, Melanie, and her family.  They are traveling through very stormy waters right now and can use all the help they can get.

    1. Michelle - She could use the boost. This has been a really difficult week for her.

  2. Susan, I too am naturally a skeptical person (& impatient if the truth be told). Recent events have taught me that I need to lighten up, be more positive & kinder too. I will think positive thoughts for your friend Melanie. It sucks when you have friends going through tough situations that you can't help.

  3. Oh, so, so true that most of us are fortunate enough to have only little, bitty, tiny problems to deal with compared to so many others around us. (And so often we don't even know what others are dealing with on a day-to-day basis.) I am blessed to have the life I do and thank you for the reminder of that.

    I'm sending prayers, positive thoughts and wishes for much healing to your friend Melanie and her family. I know you are there for her in any way you can be.

  5. Just yesterday, I watched a powerful video clip on staying positive during bad times. The man said, that no matter what you are going through, at some point in the future, you will look back at that time as one of POSITIVE change. You have to really believe that no matter what, you WILL get through it, and in some way it will end up being something you needed to get through. And as I look back on my own life and remember the most terrible times, yes--they spurred me to change something that needed to be changed. I hope your friend has the courage and strength to get through whatever it is. And with friends surrounding her-she will.
