Regaining perspective

Because my cupholder in my reliable minivan is broken,


Because I made coffee in my little coffeemaker in my comfortable house,


Because I was taking my healthy, beautiful little girl to Gymnastics class,


Because I braked suddenly when the first vehicle in a line of late-model vehicles almost missed his turn,


Because my coffee spilled in the passenger seat,

        I was feeling a little pouty.  I thought, "I want a car with a cupholder that works!"

But then I remembered, and wondered ---

     How much coffee spilled in Haiti the day of the earthquake?


    So teach us to number our days,
         That we may present to You a heart of wisdom. 
                                Psalm 90:12

I'm feeling a little pouty myself today. Thanks for the perspective.
