 For my local readers, you will recognize this logo. It’s from a grocery store here in our area called Publix. This was on one of their weekly sales ads.

The other day, a friend said this, “I have discovered that sometimes the people who should be our biggest fans just aren’t, while people who shouldn’t care much at all end up being our biggest fans.”Now, right off the bat, let me just say… being a “fan” has different degrees.

My weight, my looks, and my intelligence have all fallen into the categories of stuff I have compared to other women before.My Pastor’s message last Sunday was on complaining and he mentioned comparing.

Have you ever heard that saying, “Life is what you make it?” In a way that’s true. If you spend your days worrying and complaining about all of the wrong in your life or in the world, then you aren’t looking for the great and wonderful things.
