When I left her viewing room, my heart ached and I said...."Lord, this never gets easier. And why is there so much suffering? Why is life so cruel? How can I put it in perspective?" I was passing the next viewing room when all of a sudden a beautiful little blonde toddler came bouncing along, pushing her doll buggy....I smiled immediately and then thought ....children have a way of putting everything into perspective. So, the hopelessness I was feeling changed within a moment because of that child.
This doesn't erase my grief, but the vision of that little child made me take a deep breath and draw in some of the life she was exuding.
Perhaps you might want to look around in your life and see what brings you a fresh perspective.
