My first sememster in college I took a business management class. I remember coming across a vocublary word "opportunity cost". For some reason it seems to be the only thing I can remember from that class. Today I was visiting my little sisters blog and read the news that she and her husband have a great opportunity to go to London for two years for a work related job. Suddenly I felt jealous and wished it were me. I know that I probably will never travel father than a days drive. Then as I read on she talked about having to stop the adoption process that they have just begun. She talked about having to decide weather they should go or not. The words opportunity cost came to mind. Each of us have to decide in this life. Most of us turn to prayer for the answers. Sometimes the things we choose to do lead us away from other choices. I suddenly felt like although I will never travel the world over it is because I have chosen to have six beautiful children. My lot in life is to raise them. A blessing that some don't have. I really feel that it is important to not compare ourselves to others. Sometimes it may look as though they are more blessed, but in reality we all are blessed just in different ways. I am excited that Emily and Brent get the opportunity to travel. I hope they can find opportunities to adopt in London. Maybe if I starve the kids and scrimp on the food budget I will get to come visit!
