Trivial Details Day

Today as I was showering I was thinking about the fact that my mascara is so dried out, the last bits of my concealer are having to be pried out of the bottle, my eyeliner tip has been sharpened to a tiny nub and I'm out of mousse...it's time for new make-up!

I was trying to decide if I should have run to the store to pick up more make-up BEFORE I showered or if I should shower, THEN go to the store, with no make-up, taking the chance that I run into people I know who would be shocked at my face WITHOUT make-up and my mousse-less hair!

and then I stopped...and gratitude overwhelmed me...

I am grateful that for TODAY...these are the trivial thoughts that I have to deal with.

I KNOW that this will not always be the case, that trials are coming, not sure when, not sure how bad and not sure how I'll handle them, but it's a guarantee that they are coming...

Then my thoughts went to my Sister-in-law Ana who is undergoing chemo therapy for her recently discovered cancer....stupid cancer....and then to my friend Pat who is undergoing chemo for her second time...battling again, stupid cancer....and then my thought went to my friend whose boy is undergoing surgery today to prevent his one good eye from going blind....and I hope that when my trials arrive, and they will arrive, that I will handle them as graciously and as bravely as they do....




I'm grateful to know these amazing people and I pray that their burdens may be lightened...

God bless you if you are struggling today, and if your struggles are mild, then thank God for the trivial details days...
