My view at the moment. Dropped my niece off at her BYU apartment.....helped her carry luggage and boxes in....chatted for maybe 10 minutes....went back to get in the car and.....it was gone. Turns out it was towed in the 15 minutes that we took to drop her off.
Left my mom at my nieces since it was more than a 2 mile walk to get the car back, but took my oldest with me even though she had an injured ankle (she wouldn't let me walk alone in the dark...love that girl).
Sucky but I am very grateful that we got the car back and made it home safely.
We can lift ourselves, and others as well, when we refuse to remain in the realm of negative thought and cultivate within our hearts an attitude of gratitude. If ingratitude be numbered among the serious sins, then gratitude takes its place among the noblest of virtues.
