Perspective

I was in a mini mart parking lot Monday morning, when I spotted a dime on the pavement.  As I picked up I thought, "This is the best thing that's going to happen to me today." 

It was a rough morning, on top of a rough weekend.  The details are unimportant.

Then, I thought about it for a while. 

I spent part of my day in Picture Rocks, where a family's home was badly damaged by fire.  After that, it was a homicide in Williamsport.  A man was shot in the street, and left to die.

I have nothing to complain about.

After work, it was home to a good family.  A walk around town with the dog provided the opportunity for a little fresh air and for my headache to go away.

It's worth a whole lot more than a dime.
