    I love this post! Your right, life is not fair all the time. Some of those unfair moments may be able to help us grow if we look at them and think how we could have made it a better situation. (I'm preaching to myself here)Hope your family has a great Thanksgiving!

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours, too. Thanks for this message… It is so easy to get caught up in all of the little things that are unfair and forget or disregard the blessings that are so prominent. Finding the good can sometimes be hard, but prayer continuously works, and God is so very good. Thanks again.

    Thank you for reminding me of all I have in life that is important. My "woe is me" pity party is over. God bless.

    Mom used to tell me us that it wasn't fair for Jesus to die on the cross for us but He did. Never talk about fair.

    I used to tell my students (and my own kids) that the definition of fair is not everyone getting the same thing. Fair is everyone getting what they need. My kids never pulled the "that's not fair" card again : o )

    What a wonderful post! This is something we try to remember at our house, too. Life so often is unfair in our favor, we are blessed beyond what we deserve.
    I love your blog- came for a project and found much more than DIY inspiration! Great job!
