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.
