At times the little things in our lives seem huge. If a person allows it to happen, they can feel very much overwhelmed.
I had a very off-key week that began with the death of my mother-in-law. Several of my does had kids and did not want to take care of their newborns for a few days. Annie gave birth to two live kids, and one very dead one. She is much better, another 3 or 4 days and we’ll be out of the woods. Her kids are fine, nursing on bottles. We have had water problems, thank goodness for all of the rain. I now have oodles of beautiful rain water for the goats.
Overall, I decided to focus on what is good. Focus on what needed to be done. Focus on what was directly in front of me. It worked, it always does.
I did not focus on anything that was not positive. My prayers included thanks for the troubles. I knew I would learn and grow from them. I did.
Life is good despite the hardships. The more we can edure, the stronger person we become, and perhaps, in turn, we can help others.
Have a beautiful weekend!
