Deserve

While I was climbing into bed this evening,
after a long day, 
my ulcers acting up because of stress
I checked in with Seth Godin's blog and I came across a post titled "Deserve,"
and I started to think.

Yeah, life is currently stressful:
Working 35 hours a week, and making enough to cover our bills,
Taking 17 credits at school
Seeing Adam for the first time each day at 11:00 at night
Getting ready to join the job market
The current economy
. . . . . . . . . . . . 

But after reading that article I began to think

Do I deserve to be attending such a great University?
Do I deserve to be married to such an incredible man?
Do I deserve to be part of the BYU AD Lab and have so many incredible experiences?
Do I deserve to have the opportunity to be a part of such a fantastic internship program?
Do I deserve to live in such a nice condo that provides a roof over our heads?
Do I deserve clean water, and a daily meal?
My list could continue. . . . .

Who knows who really deserves what, but like Seth said,
What am I going to do with all that I have been blessed with.

Beautifully spoken. Things can make us so down and discouraged but when you think about it we still are so blessed.

So nice to see you blogging again. And a great post. I was also thinking about that stuff last week when I watched an "Oprah" episode about middle-class families that were losing everything because of the bad economy. It really makes you reflect on how blessed we all are despite the daily stresses. Thanks for the post.
