This morning Bear was laying in his walk in closet instead of getting dressed. "Get up and get dressed." His reply "My medicine this morning tasted like hands". Meaning I had probably touched it with my disgusting hands and he didn't appreciate it. "Yes Bear I get up at 4 am and touch everyones medication." I turned and walked out and thought "Here we go." Sometimes I get so focused on myself. I focus on the problems.
A lady quite a bit younger than myself is having surgery for breast cancer today at 2:30.

Sometimes we need to quit giving ourselves a pity party and look outward. There are other people suffering and in need of encouragement. Yes. Our lives can be very hard. It is heartwrenching to see a child so disconnected from the world and lashing out in anger day after day. But for today I will turn outward and look for those to which I can extend a kind word, an encouragement and a prayer. There are many needs besides my own little world.
