Haiti in my Heart

So I know this is all anyone is talking about lately, but Haiti has really been weighing on my mind. Just the other day I was sitting at work, wishing I was somewhere else, really just whining and complaining. And then a news brief about Haiti popped up, and all of sudden it hit me: I am a spoiled little brat who acts like the world revolves around her. How dare I have the audacity to complain about such trivial things, when there are people in the world experiencing the most profound suffering and grief! I have a delicious meal on the table every night, Nate turns up the heat when I whimper that I'm cold, I have my family here around to support me and love me, and my family will grow twice as large in my upcoming nuptials. I have everything I could ask for, yet I was sitting there crying like a little brat! I immediately prayed for forgiveness, at the same time, thanking God for reminding me that it's not always about me, and that no matter what, there is always someone carrying a heavier cross than my own.
