There is always tommorow

Many of us are going through some bad times either in life or with our family. I am lucky that my bad times come with an expiration date. For 90 days I have to put up with stupidity beyond my control.

There are good people hurting right now and whatever slings and arrows I must endure is trivial. We are all capable of great strengths. The economy will improve and for the most part times will be better.

Just remember when times are bad sometimes the smile of a friend and a gentle word are enough to get us to tomorrow. Never ever be so proud of yourself that you can not overcome adversity.

Perhaps the rest of us should keep this in our pockets instead of just patting someone on the back and telling them the world is gonna get better.

If I had known the trouble you were bearing;
what griefs were in the silence of your face;
I would have been more gentle and more caring;
And tried to give you space.
I would have brought more warmth to the place,
If I had known.
If I had known what thoughts despairing drew you;
why do we never try to understand?
I would have lent a little friendship to you.
And slipped my hand within your hand,
And made your stay more pleasant in the land,
If I had known.
