Sycamore, IL, USA
I'm sorry you're feeling depressed. Over the years, whenever those feelings began to take hold, I'd picture much worse scenes, like I could be a woman in Iraq. Then perhaps I'd lack an education, and have children I had no way to support. I could be one of the families whose home was bombed. Then the fact that my husband was on strike while I was expecting our 5th child didn't seem quite so earthshattering. My mom always said I'd be so happy to bag up my problems and toss them in a garbage heap, but if I had to go pick one out, I'd be scrambling to find mine, knowing others can be far worse.
Offering prayer for you,
