it's no big deal

there are a lot of things in life that are "big deals" but lately i have spent time reflecting over things that i tend to treat as "big deals" but they really aren't. i want to be the type of fiancee, daughter, sister, aunt, friend, and co-worker who gets it...there are truly too many things in life that are a real deal big deal that there is no point in making a mountain out of a mole hill. ;)

i've read several blogs lately by people who have lost children in the last year. joel and i attended the steven curtis chapman concert friday night (which was awesome and amazing, by the way)....those people who are walking through such pain and suffering are faced with a big deal. life is too short and too precious to see it any other way.

now, i'm not advising that we all live in denial and choose not to work through or deal with real problems but i am saying that i want to have the right perspective. things right now that can sometimes get me "worked up" really don't matter a bit in the scope of the rest of my life OR in eternity.

really, it's no big deal.
