I'm saying amazing because it really should not have been a "feel good" week. Last Sunday my friend Linda called to tell me her husband of 47 years had passed away, suddenly. Ed (64) had had a bad heart for several years but still managed to work and do what needed to be done. Linda you may remember is a breast cancer survivor of less than a year. Plus they were in the process of downsizing and moving to a smaller home.
So this week she has had to bury her husband and pack and move from a home of 25 years, going through all that stuff that we all accumulate and still not lose her mind. All of this basically in 6 days. When asked how she's doing, she just has a little smile and says, "God doesn't give us more than we can handle."
I think my faith is strong, but I'm not sure it compares to Linda's. I feel good today because I have such a wonderful friend.
I hope I stop and think about her week the next time I'm whinny about how busy I am or have a case of the "Poor Me's".
