I don't know why...

...God is so good to us.
Our world is full of so much sadness...and here I sit, spoiled rotten!
There are kids I here about every day that live in a home where they are not cared for, unloved, hungry and in need of a bath and some clean clothes.  My heart aches when I hear about it, but I really can't imagine it.  I never went without, my parents made sure of it.  Mom was always home and there whenever I needed anything, and Dad worked hard to provide fore our family and came home and still took time to wrestle, play dodgeball indoors, play board games, take us on camping, hiking and biking trips, etc.  
I hear of marriages every day that are falling apart, full of anger and hatred, and sometimes even abuse.  Some feel trapped so they stay and put up with it, others leave and try to make it on their own.  Here I sit, happily married to the man who fully completes me.  The man who works his tail off to make sure we have what we need and again comes home ready to keep on giving of himself. 
Then there are those who are getting ready to say goodbye to the love of their lives...we recently got news that one of Doug's coworkers is in those shoes.  Her husband is in his mid to late 30's, has cancer, and has just been sent home on hospice to die.  They have 4(ish) year old twin boys, that are going to grow up without a dad...Mom is going to have to do this on her own, while grieving and trying to be strong for her kids.   
It really makes you sit back and wonder why me?  Why am I so blessed???!!!
Don't get me wrong, I'm NOT complaining.  
I try my best to not let a day go by that I take what God has blessed me with for granted.
