Like many of you, perhaps, one of my habits is to start every morning by checking out the Weather Channel for the local weather. What is amazing is how far they will go to find something sad to tell me. Perhaps its a small oil spill in Louisiana or a flood in Bangladesh or a tornado somewhere. What ties these together is that they have nothing to do with me. 

As I age, I find myself much less concerned with such things, even on the Weather Channel. I have a family to care for and a job to do and neighbors to love, all of which are much more important in my life than these things that are so far away from me. 

So, for today, let's think about focusing on what we can control. On the laundry and the dishes and our jobs and our husbands.

Instead of the news channel, how about watching our lives for a day?
