Perspective...is a wonderful thing!

I have to be careful how much news I consume on a daily basis. There are so many sad stories and reports, that it is easy to get drug down by them all. Yet, there is a fine line in staying informed and constantly having anxiety from all the terrible stories on the news. I try to find that balance.
 Today I was down most of the day, felt like I was sorta fighting a bug of some kind. It wasn't bad, but it felt hard to get up and get moving. As I looked today in the Seattle Times of the Photos of the Day, I realized when I saw this man in Pakistani walking through a flooded streeet on a rainy day in Peshawar, Pakistan...that my day wasn't that bad after all.
 Perspective...is a wonderful thing! It keeps you grounded, and for that I am grateful. Night dear friends!
