The Blessings in my Life

So lately I have truly realized how blessed I really am. The other day I was having a pity party and just didn't understand why I had to go through a certain trial yet again for the third time. It was over something so little. It was until I went to work that day and sat and listened to a girl at work that has a husband who has pornography problems, when I listened to a girl whose husband cheated on her, when I heard about a family who just lost there mother, when I heard about a family who was suffering to make ends meet, when I looked through pictures of Africa and realized there life style. After pondering about these huge trials that people were going through I really stopped and realized how great my life truly is. I have an amazing family who loves me and supports me in everything that I do, I have amazing friends who keep me laughing, I have an amazing job that I get to see little miracles come into this world, I have the Gospel of Jesus Christ to help me get through each and everyday. What else do I need? I truly am so blessed, and at times I tend to forget that. I think why me? Why does life have to be so hard, what else is there to learn from this, when truly it is so great! I tend to forget that. I think we all forget how great life truly is. Sometimes we get so caught up in the big decisions in life that we forget about the everyday decisions. The simple decisions such as to say your prayers, to read your scriptures, to simply get up in the morning. If we are doing the simple decisions when we get to the big ones we will be prepared and know how make that decision or deal with that certain trial. In last weeks CES fireside they talked about taking life one day at a time. Just do all that you can do to make it through that one day, and then worry about tomorrow later. I truly am grateful for the life that I have even though at times I think I have it so rough, but I have to remember that I don't have all the answers. I can't see the big picture. I have to remember that as long as I do my part I will be blessed. I have been promised that! Heavenly Father is in control, and I wouldn't want it any other way. Well there ya have my little spill for the night!
