…of perspective…


…”Stocks plunge as cracks begin to show in Canada’s energy sector”…”Listen up parents: Gen Y’s financial problems will cost you”…”Hockey Night in Canada: How CBC lost it all”…

All in a day’s headlines that flash—caution! concern! calamity!

Something about deteriorating conditions and their debilitating effect on demand for Canada’s energy and other resources…

Something about parents working extra hours, dipping into their retirement savings and remortgaging their homes to help out adult children. “The ‘poor young people’ narrative has no traction, it seems. Maybe switching to ‘poor parents’ will change that,” some say…

Something about a cash-strapped broadcaster losing a “Canadian institution it held for 62 years because it could not hope to match the money Rogers threw at the NHL. The only revenue the CBC will get now is from renting its studios, some offices and providing staff to the conquerors”…

And so it goes…our world of woes…

Perspective! Perspective! Perspective!

Amid tribulations & adversity, we need to accentuate the positive of our many blessings too!

There is much in life that is full of wonder & brings joys & happiness!

What will grab your attention with awe & wonder today?…

Will a simple gesture be a blessing to you on a rainy Wednesday?…

When all is said & done, cheers to gratitude with the setting of the sun!…
