There seems to be so many people struggling lately with different issues. It's in the news and I hear it from my friends - drug deaths in the Fox Valley, missing adults and children, health issues, mental illness, loneliness, family and marriage struggles, worries about jobs and finances. Each day is a gift, but some days it may be hard to see the beauty of the day beyond the struggles.
Everyone has their own struggles and they are no more or no less than any one else's struggles. They are THEIR personal struggles. Many times you don't know what the struggles are of your friends or coworkers. Be kind, and understand that we are all on a journey that holds twists and turns, ups and downs.
Even with the struggles of everyday life, each day is a gift. I walked around my yard today, with my camera and took a few shots of the beauty that surrounds me each day. Take a minute to see the beauty that surrounds YOU!
