Perspective

Blogging Friends.... I have fallen a bit behind on most of your Web sites. I shall soar through them. Soon. Hopefully!! I am also still reading through my Life Story, and have three chapters left!! Almost finished!! I am looking forward to reading the next chapter, as it was literally written during a cosmic mood swing when God taught me "Perspective". Speaking of which. I awoke yesterday "on the wrong side of the bed", as that phrase goes. I was tired, had a rough night's sleep, felt sick of being sick, and nobody expressed any pity for me!! Well. So it felt, anyway!! I was doing it again. Throwing myself yet another pity party. Why must I even "go there"? I walked around yesterday with an invisible ebony rain cloud hovering over my head. Until early afternoon. I owe that to finally allowing myself some chocolate!! I was having a serious craving!! Yes, I am addicted!! It's a problem. Lest anybody wonder, I am in even brighter spirits today!! Obviously!! So, I shall close with a quote by someone who I greatly admire. Helen Keller.
 
"Self-pity is our worst enemy and if we yield to it, we can never do anything wise in this world." --Helen Keller
 
Please pray for a Beautifully Unique Kindred Spirit CDH Friend who I have "met" Online. Her name is Sunni. She's nearly nine months old. Aside from the congenital diaphragmatic hernia, Sunni has also suffered through some serious heart problems. This was posted on her Mom's Facebook page yesterday. "Well the roller coaster continues. After she got dehydrated they started giving her replacement fluid for all the output she has from her vented g-tube. Now she is starting to get super puffy which leads to worsened breathing. They had to put her back on oxygen (.75 liters currently). They also stopped feeds completely because she was so uncomfortable and distended day before yesterday. Now I was just told they think she is having congestive heart failure. -*Sighs*-".
 
That kind of puts my emotional, moody yesterday into perspective....

I love the Helen Keller quote. I love chocolate as well, sometimes you just have to have it! I will say a prayer for your friend. It sounds like she has many burdens right now.

It's amazing how insignificant our problems are when we see others.

I hope little Sunni feels much better soon. You are right, everything seems so significant when we look at the problems others have to face.
