In a not so perfect world

In a not so perfect world the bath math is dirty.

In a not so perfect world there are mildew stains in the shower.

In a not so perfect world the dog smells.

In a not so perfect world a child wakes up in the middle of the night crying for Mommy.

In a not so perfect world a baby spits up.

In a not so perfect world grandparents live far away from their grandchildren.

In a not so perfect world a husband and a wife grapple to maintain control of daily life.

Then one day through the grace of the Big Man in the sky, another level of clarity deepens. And even though the world and the people in it are not perfect, progression toward living a proud life wins.

Requests for assistance prevail.

Priorities emerge.

Family relationships strengthen.

Friendships tighten.

Senses sharpen.

Humor trumps concern.

Communication lines open.

Wisdom results.
