Sometimes we all just need a few encouraging words, eh? Life gets hard, people get sick, plans don’t work out, tragedies strike, life gives you lemons. It’s part of this mortal journey, but it is not all. Difficult times are not the only times. Maybe we have to look a little harder through the gloom, but the good things are still there: love and joy, successes and accomplishments, celebrations, dancing, and lemonade.
Our family is going through some terrifically trying times right now, but somehow there is still laughter, people bringing ice cream—Chocolate. Dark. Because milk chocolate is a color, not a flavor—unexpected hugs or phone calls, little things that remind us that there is joy.
Because I need it, because everyone needs it, here are a few reminders, a few encouraging words to help us see the good things and help us to keep our chins up and our smiles at the ready.
Thank you for being there—for me, for each other. Keep up the good work.
