In the midst of our modern world “strifes and struggles,” like juggling chaotic schedules, too much work and too little time, losing a job, relocating, & intimate relationships made lukewarm by the sheer volume of “tasks” the family faces, it’s easy to lose perspective.

They are, while difficult, opportunities.
And they are opportunities many people around the world will never have the luxury of experiencing.
