It's All Too Much!

Posted by Anita Brett on March 20, 2011 at 10:36 AM

I'm American

so I have THINGS

LOTS of THINGS.

My gift to my husband this year

is to de-clutter

because

It's All Too Much!

This is also the title of a great book

on de-cluttering.

But then

I look at the news

this week

or last week,

And

It's  All Too Much Too!

I turn off the radio

because I'm certain

that I don't need to

constantly

 internalize

the pain and tragedy

of the world.

Internalizing the pain and tragedy of the people around me,

the people that I can help

Is quite enough for today.

I will pray for my missionary friend

who has been in Japan for 20 years.

I will continue to send finacial help to Haiti and elsewhere.

But today

I will

turn off the radio

and look around and offer help and the touch of a friend

because today

It's All Too Much!
