"Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are?"

There is only one thing for sure in our lives; and that is that we are all destined to die. How we live our lives is a choice that we individually make. This deciding factor either makes us live life with happiness written on our faces (albeit, life is never always smiles) or with sadness and stress as our trademarks. Sometimes it's hard to believe that someone else might be enduring more hardship than you, but as Dr. Seuss wrote in "Did I Ever Tell you How Lucky You Are"
When you think things are bad,
when you feel sour and blue,
when you start to get mad...
you should do what I do!

Just tell yourself, Duckie,
you're really quite luck!
Some poeple are much more...
oh, ever so much more...
oh, muchly much-much more
unlucky than you!
I love this book because it really hits on points that we struggle with all of our lives. We might think life for other people is bliss, but walking a mile in their shoes might not be as comfortable as expected.

For example, not two seconds ago my son climbed out of his crib for the first time. He's not even two yet! So what is one to do...how am I ever going to make him sleep in his bed again? Vaseline on the feet worked once...but, ummmm what happens when he figures out how to wipe it off? So, instead of making this a bad situation, I will be happy that he is able to undertake such acrobatic feats at such a young age, mashaAllah.

I'll keep you updated on the whole sleep situation as it develops...naps have just flown the coop!

How do you deal with your everyday conundrums?
