There really is.
Sometimes we just have to look a little bit (or sometimes a lot) harder. Just like the sunshine never lasting for days on end, those rain showers too, really do pass. The hard part is waiting for those clouds to part.
Patience; and I’ll be the first to say it (again), is not my strength. I struggle through the wait. I worry about the what if’s. My anxiety is sometimes off the flippin charts but a new day still comes, regardless of what I’m ready for.
In follow up to my last post, I still have power and my necessary bills are all caught up thanks to the help and love from close friends and family. And I’m thankful.
I’m thankful for the support and the love and the encouragement. I’m thankful for the few and the faithful who love me through the hard times and I’m hopeful that when others need the sunshine, that I will share my light just as freely as the people who helped me have. I try to be ever mindful of my blessings and I count them all on my days when I’m feeling less than.
But there’s always a bright side. You just have to look for it.
