I spent the weekend doing mundane things: laundry, shopping, cleaning, cooking, reading, writing, paying a few bills. As I went about my daily tasks two things prompted me to declare my gratitude to God. I have been at a nominal pain level all weekend and the weather has been warm and wonderful. Both contributed to my ability to complete my tasks and my attitude about doing them.
I know others are struggling right now with pain, illness, and emotional stress. I know our Eastern friends and family members are gearing up for major weather changes tomorrow that may affect everything they do for the next few days or even months.
Let those of us who are enjoying a respite from winter woes take time today to be thankful and to pray for others less fortunate.
