Mostly it is loss which teaches us about the worth of things.
This has been a difficult time for many in our community- countless firefighters and other first responders working tirelessly to put out this massive wildfire in our area- many elderly impacted by the enormous amounts of smoke, people without power, school children evacuated, can’t get to work, stuck in traffic and can’t get home.
Yesterday, one of my students and his family now have no house to go home to. None of their belongings were saved. Yet they are simply happy to be alive.
“I once cried because I had no shoes then I met a man who had no feet.”
Keeping life in perspective.
I hope this serves as a small, gentle reminder to begin and end each day with a grateful heart.
