Going back many years, this beautiful picture was taken. It is a touching moment between my husband and daughter. The picture shows a perfect snapshot of life, and how happy my family was at this time.
What this picture does not tell you is the extremely difficult period in our lives this actually was. I was going through some confusing health issues. and my husband and I were extremely stressed. I had three small children, and was at a loss as to how to handle all the responsibilities and restore my health.
The picture was not an attempt to pretend my life was perfect, but a way to show that I still had blessings and there were wonderful parts of my life too, which there were many.
I am not one to publicize sufferings to many, but that does not mean I have not experienced any. Thankfully I overcame my misfortune, and I was blessed with the lessons I learned.
We all have bumps in the road and adversity at times. That is why it is so very important to be kind, always, to everyone. For you never know what someone is going through.The next time you believe someone to have the perfect life, remember the picture: you see is only part of the whole.
Never underestimate your ability to make someone's life a little better, even if you never know it. Be kind.
