Lest you think you have any problems...

Watch the news. How awful is it that the fires in California are as bad as they are??? I can't even imagine how awful it would be to lose EVERYTHING you own in a house fire. You can replace the actual house with insurance, but the photos and sentimental things? Genealogy? Terrible. The fires and forced evacuations will certainly give the people in Southern California an opportunity to give and serve their fellow Californians who lost so much.

And, my friend's son was nearly killed this week, but with some divine intervention was saved and is walking around after breaking a vertebrae in his neck & having surgery on Friday morning. Truly amazing. But, please, everyone, WEAR YOUR SEATBELTS. EVERY TIME you get in a car.

Things like this have a way of helping put our problems into perspective, I think. Helps us focus a bit better about what is REALLY important.
