Perspective is one of my favorite words or concepts. It is my reality check when my day isn't going so well because I'm bogged down with taking care of my children, fulfilling my calling in church, keeping house, etc. I am glad I have a view of the "big picture" in all I do or else I wouldn't be able to get through most days.
In another sense of the word, my daughter recently learned about perspective as she recounted some information she found to me. The conversation went like this:
Katy: Mom, I met the new family down on the corner that lives by Maddie.
Mom: That's nice, do they have children?
Katy: Yeah, but not that many.
Mom: Well, how many do they have?
Katy: Only 5.
I suppose when mom is pregnant with #8, having five in a family seems relatively small. It's all about perspective people.
