Putting Life into Perspective

May 5, 2011-This has been a trying few days for us. My sister, Jane had a massive stroke and watching her when her life was touch and go puts a different perspective on life for me. The things that I commonly worry about are mere drops in the bucket when they are put into perspective by an event such as that. Material things and the trivia of life pale when put into comparison to such a horrible event as a stroke and a life or death situation. What has seemed important have taken on an aura of insignificance in the light of the gravity of an eternal prospect. I know that all people have to go through things like that if they live on the earth long enough but they do make one see through a different set of filters and in fact we see them in an entirely different light. What is an occurrence that we see every day and pass it is seen to be very grave when it is someone personal and close that is involved causes us to sympathize with those other folks because we know in all the cases someone is going through the same process of worry and grief that we are now going through.
