blessed - yes we are!

I have been out of the loop for a while just focusing on my personal issues.

I finally heard the news of what the poor people in Haiti are going through... news takes a bit to get to me because I honestly don't stay up to watch the news.

Yes, I like to enclose myself in a bubble. I honestly would say that this is how I handle things. LOVE myself a good ole plastic bubble where I can hide myself and come out when I believe it's safe.

So I was reading about all the mishap that they are going through in Haiti and it makes my problems so so small. Pain in my neck? What pain? Compared to the poor children going through this devastation their pain is much bigger then my stupid pain. I wish my boys knew how lucky they are. I am so thankful that they have never gone through hunger or seen any kind of devastation like what the children are seeing in Haiti.

I wish I knew why things happen the way they do. I wish I could fly to them and help. It's so sad to me honestly. I can't comprehend why this happens to some of us in other parts of this world. As I sit here time and time again when you read on my blog and I say I am truly blessed..... I ain't kidding.....

Look around..... pls look around and take a minute to thank GOD for all the blessings we receive everyday. BIG or small they are still blessings.

I enjoy following your blog. Have been wondering what you found out at the doctors. The news of Haiti is so disturbing and painful to watch. Hope you get the help you need for your pain. I suffer from fibromyalgia and it is really kicking it up right now. Blessings to you and your family.
