I've often heard the phrase "it's the game of life" used to describe our existence...but I disagree. Life is an adventure, a journey..and yes, whilst it seems some have it easier than others, some have much more whilst others have far less, that some don't care, whilst others are full of hurt and compassion...for each of us life is a gift...one to be nurtured, one to be fought against when the battle hardens, one to be cherished with those around us. Comparing your situation to another's, is like playing monopoly and hating the person who gets Park Lane because it pays out more....pointless at the end of the day...my experience of monopoly and life is to build up the little you have and watch as slowly it grows and brings you blessings beyond your wildest beliefs!
So, today my friend...I encourage you to consider the game player you want to be....one who lives life forever barging past people, not caring, missing out on the simple delights, always wanting to be the best, the winner, the one who passes GO or the FINISH line first....or one who knows to keep being a game player to those times when the board games come out the cupboard or the wii gets switched on. A person who chooses to live life calling it what it is....LIFE....A GIFT!
I know which one I want to continue to strive to be.
Be Blessed :-)
