Broken Heart

You know...there are sometimes in life where your heart just breaks for someone else. Well i had one of those experiences the other day and it did not even happen to me, it happened to Anthony, who told me about it. I am one of those people who have trouble with the help the animal commercials and the feed the hungry campaigns. They just tend to break my heart so much!!! You know we really dont take the time to realize ALL of the blessings that we have everyday! We are loaded with Blessings... and we dont even acknowledge it or the one who gave it to us. All we can think about is the next upgrade in this, or i really want that.  But what about the simple pleasures in life? The joys have should satisfy us? Thank him daily for all his blessings

Continuing with my story, Anthony came home the other day from taking Matt to preschool ay 7:20 am and told me this story.
         He said " I took Matt inside this morning and was signing him into class when i noticed this little boy sitting at the table looking really really sad. His head was in his hands, and he just looked like a lost puppy. So i went along helping Matt put his jacket and book bag up, then i got down and gave Matt a bear bug, but while i was hugging him, this little boy was watching us the whole time. So i finally asked the little boy what was wrong and he said "im sad"  so I said "why are you sad bud?". Then the little boy said, "I was watching you and was wishing that I had a daddy."............... It just hit me hard. It broke my heart, so i tried to cheer him up a little. We played for a little bit and i joked with him and finally he went off with Matt to play. But it just broke my heart.."

Of course when Anthony told me all this, it broke my heart as well. Its even hard to type. Now i dont know the situation with that little boy, but he is in my prayers i can tell you that. I am so so so so so thankful that Matt has a Daddy who loves him with all his heart, and such a good support system all around him. I am also thankful that Anthony is the type of man who would take the time after working for 12hrs on third shift to cheer up a little sad boy...  Major blessing to me that I know came from God.

Hope you all take something away from this, blessings are all around us.
