The Brrrrrrright Side


             Okay so who hasn't had enough of the snow and frigidiculous temperatures?  I know 'the kids.'  As ongoing and never-ending as it seems, we must remember that it could be worse.  We have much to be thankful for.... indoor plumbing vs outhouses, electricity vs sitting cold in the dark, central heat vs putting another log on the fire, shelter vs homelessness..... and these are just the basics.
            I have to go outside and up the driveway to go upstairs for my showers.  I often psych myself up before going out the door by saying that whatever the weather is like, it could be worse.  'It's 15 degrees but at least it's not raining.'
           Other people in the world pray for just a tad of what you have daily.  So as we all complain about our 'spoiled' conditions, just remember to add some thankfulness into that monologue.

  5. I didn't realize you had to go upstairs for a shower. I thought your dad had fixed you up with all those conveniences in your downstairs apartment. Now, I really think you are BRAVE! Brrrrrr!

    Have a great day and stay warm.

  6. Love the title and the perspective...

  7. What a trooper you are!! And how ashamed am I! We take so many things for granted, but on those cold wintry days I say over and over again my thanks to God for my warm house and warm bed. We need to focus on all the good things He does for us and stop wishing for more! Be content in all circumstances...isn't that what He tells us to do?!! Preaching to myself you, T.
