a different kind of sacrifice

While we need to make the sacrifice to respond to the suffering around us, there is a time for allowing people to suffer.  And that is often a more difficult sacrifice to make.  It begins with children–allowing them to learn by suffering the consequences of their mistakes.  Parents often find it easier just to “fix it”.

Another case where you need to allow “suffering”, is for people who are disabled.  They really don’t want you to do everything for them–living with two blind people in the house, we know that from experience!  The other mistake people make in this area that “drives us crazy”, is to think that life is so very terrible for us.  We adjust, and yes, we even manage to live quite contentedly!

And now, to make YOUR life more content, we’re going to make this post short–since you had so much to read from us yesterday. :P
