Truly, my children have brought me greater joy in this life than they have sorrow or grief. Our situation is difficult yet it's brought us closer together as a family. We do most things together and have had lots of discussions and opportunities to work and learn together. We've had to be creative with our resources and had many evening discussions because of that.
A dear neighbor of mine was not blessed to have children in this life. He and his wife have experienced much sorrow and grief because of it. My heartaches along with them.
We each have joys and sorrows in this life. Many of them are unseen by others. It seems to me that we ought to be sensitive to the needs and feelings of those around us.
Many of our life's struggles are not because of our own unrighteousness. If we could truly understand that and be kind to those who are hurting, there would be more joy and happiness in each of our lives.
