Oh that God would give every mother a vision of the glory and splendor of the work that is given to her when a babe is place in her bosom to be nursed and trained! Could she have but one glimpse in to the future of that life as it reaches on into eternity; could she look into it's soul to see its possibilities; could she be made to understand her own personal responsibility for the training of this child, for the development of its life, and for its destiny,--she would see that in all God's world there is no other work so noble and so worthy of her best powers, and she would commit to no others hands the sacred and holy trust given to her." -JR Miller

I think this could definitely be classed as a trial - coping with a broken finger. I don't have any choice in the circumstances but I do have a choice in my attitude!
So, am I going to choose to dwell on the difficulties and how hard it is to manage with my right hand out of action?

Am I going to choose to think about how I am independent and really don't like relying on other people?

Or am I going to choose to be thankful?

Thankful that I am married to a lovely man who is willing and able to help out more than usual.

Thankful for my parents who don't live too far away and are available to help me out.

Thankful that it's only a short term injury and therefore the difficulties this creates are only temporary.

What a great opportunity to put this scripture into practise

My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. (James 1:2-4 NKJV)

Not promising I will be successful all the time, but I will try to keep a thankful attitude and not dwell on how hard it is!

Enjoy the photo of me having my food cut up by my Dad!
