giving thanks

I'm feeling one of those blogs that is filled with unanswerable questions coming on. How can the world be so wonderful and yet so chaotic at the same time? And how is it that the chaos makes it wonderful? In the last week we've seen two different father's kill their children and wives (and in one case themselves), we've seen a little girl get shot and killed while playing on the swings, we've seen wild fires in California and flooding in Texas and Oklahoma. These are not things that make it a wonderful world. Yet somehow, inside myself, I have a feeling of immense calm. Maybe it's all the yoga and exercising. Maybe it's the eating healthy and nice weather. Maybe I'm in a place that I can balance the atrocities of the world with the goodness that I have in my life. I am thankful for that.
