Life is hard.
Life isn't fair- it's true
Life is also.....beautiful.
It's a treasure.
I am reminded of this as I watch my teenagers support their classmates while at a memorial for a fellow student. I'm reminded of God's loving discipline as we strive to guide and mold our children who are quickly becoming adults. I see it in the mentors and teachers who invest into my kids' lives day after day, week after week.
I remember that the sparrows are taken care of too when the mechanic says "no charge".
Thank you God, for these reminders, these friends.... this hardship.
