Adversity

I feel so humble this morning. While I woke up to a beautiful sunny day overlooking our bay, I can’t help but thinking of the hundreds of thousands of people struggling with their lives, neighbours of ours..

Fires, hurricanes, exodus. A complex, frightening and uncertain existence now and for their future.

One thing for sure, adversity doesn’t build character, it reveals it.  

So my feelings this morning are those of bittersweet.  Tonight our grandchildren come to stay over. Their innocence will cheer us up, allow us to have those moments which are so precious. We are going to hold them tight.
