Nephi Knew Too!

Frequently, some concerned friends, family, and associates who know some of my history, will marvel aloud to me about how well I've dealt with what they see as major life trials and tribulations.
They then oft times go on to further wonder and ask me about the source of my positive perspective and how I find so much for which to be grateful.
My response to them is always the same, that they don't see the whole picture of how much I also have been blessed, but Nephi, a pre-Columbian American disciple of Christ described my viewpoint and philosophy much better:
"I, Nephi,...having seen many afflictions in the course of my days, nevertheless having been highly favored of the Lord in all my days; yea, having a great knowledge of the goodness and the mysteries of God...". (Book of Mormon, 1 Nephi, Chapter 1, Verse 1)
And so it goes.
