Life isn’t fair. It’s not a sentiment of someone that has been given the raw end of the stick, or the empathy of one that is silver spooned, it is a fact.
Sometimes we are the beneficiaries if the kindness of life. Everything seems to be going our way, from one good news to another, we had enough vapor to build a mansion on cloud nine. Other times it seems like we pissed off the Almighty man upstairs and nothing, absolutely nothing seems to go our way but more often than none, we find ourselves in between the two polar ends, getting just enough luck from life to keep our sanity and enough beat down to remind us that cloud nine is an expensive district to live on.
But every now and then we see someone, a friend, family member, a stranger that reminds us that no matter how close life beats us to the ground someone is always closer and before we can take comfort in the fact that someone is worse off, we get the memo from somewhere deep down in our subconscious that “This could have been me”
So we are reminded that we are not necessarily better, stronger or faster we just are grateful to God that it wasn’t us. But let’s not stop there, let’s pray for those who got the raw deal.
