It can always be worse....

If everyone were to lay their problems and struggles on a table and look around we would gladly pick ours back up. 

Everyone has it bad at times.

Everyone struggles.

Sometimes the struggles are hard.

Sometimes the struggles are even harder. 

To the person who is concerned about needing a 2nd vehicle-
There is someone who walks their children to school and then walks to work everyday because they can't afford 1 car. 

To the person who just told their mom they hated her-
The girl down the street has grown up without her mom, who died of cancer when she was 4. 

To the person who just experienced their first miscarriage-
The lady on a pregnancy board just learned she had her 2nd tubal pregnancy and can't even try for a baby of her own.

To the person who is complaining about being too fat by their 8th month of pregnancy-
A lady down the road has been waiting 2 years to adopt a child.  

Point is.... 

It can always be worse.

I am guilty of being stuck in my self pitty, sad about things other call a blessing, and wondering if God could have sent me something better. Truth be known, I am truly blessed.

And I am forever grateful.
