Sometimes it's the little things that really get to you.

Foster hates the kitten. For a blind dog, he does a pretty good job of sniffing it out and nipping at it (which the kitten doesn't seem to notice). I sort of feel like I'm living in a Pixar movie right now.
The big, bad dog attacking the helpless kitten.
I'm not sure how something that weighs one pound, two ounces bothers Foster so much. There are four cats in this house, one of them at twenty pounds, but this kitten apparently is the last straw. Come to think of it, he's hated all the kittens.

Isn't it true with us, too? Everything else in the world is going along fine and dandy when some "little thing" gets stuck in our craw. Even if it's not directly in our line of vision, we still seek it out, just so we can hate it some more.

What's the answer? It happens to us all. The more I try to "be good" the more I realize I just simply can not. Sometimes I do better, through the grace of God. Other times, I fail in spectacular fashion. God's grace endures and purifies in all those times. And that's no little thing.

What "little thing" is bugging you today?

  1. The day to day struggles with MS is usually that little thing that is forever present. the other day my husband was "being a guy" to put it nicely but apoligized later stating "sometimes I forget what you are going through" OH HOW I WOULD LOVE TO BE ABLE TO SAY THAT. I can't possibly forget my MS because it follows me everywhere !! I continue to get up every morning with the GRACE OF GOD. P.S. that kitten is soooooo very cute
