Yesterday I read a sign in front of a church that read, "Don't be upset about having dirty dishes. At least you have something to eat." I believe this message was for me. Earlier that morning I had gotten into my car to find that someone had unlawfully entered it, made a mess and had taken some change! I was shaking all the way to work and felt very violated. I kept thinking, "I would have given it you if you needed it. Why would you steal from me?" Then when I got to work I heard about a co-worker's cousin who had taken his own life over the weekend. Suddenly my problem didn't seem so bad. And yes I have more than enough to eat. I have so much to be thankful for. It's all a matter of perspective sometimes isn't it?

    So true Savraj! Tapping into what we have to be grateful under any circumstance has such a magical way of shifting our lens :-)

    Your share also reminded me of this beautiful reflection from Guri, when her car was broken into -- do read it if you get a chance, it touches a deep part of the heart :-):
