I felt sorry for myself because I had no shoes – until I met a man who had no feet ~ Jewish proverb.
I’d been fighting that nasty bug going around.
I’d had my head stuck in numbers and policies and although this is necessary work and I appreciate its value, I was tired and happy to be going home.
When I got home, my parking spot was blocked by another vehicle.
I felt my blood pressure rise along with my temper and wrote a note that said
“… you’re blocking my spot, can you please call me when you move!”
I found a two-hour parking zone down the block and marched home like a crazy woman on a mission with anger burning in my heart.
Then I remembered that there are those who…
can’t afford a car
don’t have a job
or don’t have a home.
By the time the guy called to say, “I’m so sorry, I thought I’d only be a moment, I’m gone now…”
I replied with, “…thank you so much, no worries!”

How is it that I often forget how truly blessed I am?
