Being without free-flowing electricity for seven days straight to a person who has only had to endure a brief outage every now and again was life changing. I found myself losing hope because I was “tired” of going out to buy more gas to fuel my generator. In hindsight, I really didn’t have anything to worry about. I had the means to buy the gas, to fuel the generator to give electricity to the essential “tools” in the house that would sustain us throughout the entire ordeal. I was so focused on what I didn’t have and made it my burden instead of seeing all the things I did have.
There are people not far from me that didn’t have even that. What did I do for them?? Nothing! YIKES! Hhhmmm.. makes me think and know for sure that there’s more for me to do and to be grateful for all things (big and small).
What do your storms remind you of?
How are you striving to be a better person because of these things?
