Life isn’t always fair

Sometimes I think life just isn’t fair. We work hard all our lives , raise our children the best we can, pay our bills, and treat others with kindness and respect. Then when everything appears to be coming up roses, we get hit with one tragedy after another. (at least they seem like tragedies to me) It is hard not to think that way when your life and the way you have lived it has changed completely.

I took for granted the simple task of taking a shower, getting dressed, cooking a meal, and walking from your chair in the living room to the bathroom. I now plan my day around how far I have to walk, and make the decision if it will be worth getting so out of breath for. Today I will be hooked up with at home oxygen therapy. Hopefully this will be temporary until the doctors find the reasons for not getting enough oxygen to my vital organs.

Sometimes it’s hard to maintain a positive attitude. I hate being a negative person. I feel negativity brings out the ugly in people. I don’t want to waste my life feeling sorry for myself, and wondering why this is happening to me. My life has changed , but I am alive. I choose to see the world and live my life in a positive way. Life a good. God is good. I am blessed with everything I need. I pray to continue to see the beauty in life, and to be thankful for all the blessings I have. Have a blessed day.
