I sit here on my back patio in Nevada with a grateful, yet saddened heart I feel guilty and cannot help but think, wonder, worry & scratch my head at everything that is happening all around. I am able to sit here enjoying the beauty, the peace, the quietness and the calmness that is here as so many others cannot. I have been through the fires that burn in Montana, I have lived through it and seen it firsthand. We just recently drove through Montana as we were visiting and it breaks my heart to NOT see the beautiful mountains, to see all the people being affected by both the fires themselves and the smoke that surrounds so many including those not in the fires path and beyond. We had smoke from many fires consuming the air from North Dakota to Montana and then from Montana all the way past Salt Lake City before we could no longer smell the smoke and finally got to see some beautiful blue skies.
I do not have to worry…..
I do not have to worry about the fires getting too close or the smoke inhibiting me breathing cleaner air….
I do not have to worry about my house and belongings being flooded and ruined by all the flood waters……
I do not have to worry about the hurricanes and the destruction they bring with them…..
I do not have to worry about the Tsunamis that may be showing up due to earthquakes…..
I do not have to worry like so many others do around the world…….
I am grateful to be where I am at yet deeply saddened….. So, today and everyday when you find yourself complaining, when you find yourself upset, when you find yourself wishing you had more “things”, when you find yourself feeling as though things couldn’t possibly be any worse….. Remember, they actually could be a LOT worse and remember that someone somewhere is dealing with more. So, try to appreciate what you have and be grateful more……
My Thought and Prayers to EVERYONE being affected. Big Hugs & Much Luv from me to you as today is yet another day and we all have much to be grateful for…… Thanks for Reading my Thoughts……Robin Robinson
