Some weeks are easier than others. Last week there was a health related family emergency and I went to see my parents for a few days. It was disruptive and inconvenient, however; I am glad I went. I was able to learn more about the health issues. I was also able to serve my parents. On my several hour drive to their home I thought about the inconvenience. However, this is nothing compared to the number of hours that they inconvenienced themselves during my childhood. How many times did they want something but didn’t get it because of me? On a bigger scale, how many times have I complained about things in my life ignoring all the blessings from God? He gave His son for me so what are a few inconveniences? It can be difficult to remember and be grateful for what God has blessed me with. This past week helped me to practice this.
