It’s not always easy to participate in this transformation process. It is very much like the story of the carrot, egg and coffee. The thing is that we must remain vigilant in our recognition of the things we should be grateful for. Gratitude is a powerful thing. A few days back I began to really feel the discomfort of working a third shift position. My thoughts could have easily turned to, “Why did God have to curse me with this job.” Instead I said, “God has really blessed me with this position which has given me the ability to spend more time with my family and the extra income to get through these trying times.” I should have been more specific about the hours I wanted to work in addition to requesting the closer location. Who would have thought?
