It seems I have spent half my life complaining about small things. ‘It’s too hot or too cold. It’s monday, it’s raining, it’s snowing, why doesn’t good things happen to me...etc.’  Well, you get the point. The thing is...good things happen all the time. For instance...I woke up this morning. I don’t have cancer. I have a beautiful home. My daughters grew up to be wonderful people. I could go on and on. Something happened this past week that really made me take stock in the things I DO have. I have a great friend. She is the most wonderful christian woman I’ve ever met besides my mom. Nine years ago, her daughter who was only 15 at the time gave birth to a little girl. She was born with Dandy Walker syndrome. She couldn’t see, walk or talk and the doctor said she never would. So my friend Teresa and her husband adopted their granddaughter cause they knew their daughter could never take care of her. So for the last nine years Teresa has taught this little girl. She says some words and walks with a walker and loves to dance to her Jesus music. Eight months ago, Teresa was diagnosed with terminal cancer and the main thought in here head was who was going to take care of her precious girl. On March 2nd, Teresa’s husband Dan went to wake Skyler up to take her to her special school but sometime in the middle of the night she had had a seizure and God had slipped her away to Heaven. It had been a bad week for Teresa. She was now in so much pain from the cancer. But when they told her about Skyler, she just seemed to relax and three days after Skyler’s death, Teresa took her flight to Heaven and was reunited with Skyler. This past Sunday on March 7, we had a double funeral and they were buried together. It was hard to give up this wonderful lady but she is the reason I think differently now. I need to be thankful for the small things. Things like my job, the weather, and yes, even Mondays. Lord, I pray to have a heart like this precious woman. And today I pray that her family will feel that peace that passes all understanding.
