I keep watching the news and it's so disheartening. Jobs, homes, budget cuts. And just yesterday I found one of my favorite used books stores has up and disappeared. When a university town can't support a good used bookstore, it's just sad.
I'm trying to be courageous, have faith, keep stepping forward, but sometimes it's difficult. Everyday I reach for small moments of joy or beauty or sweetness. And sometimes I can string them together and call it a beautiful day. I hope you can too.
Take care. Have faith. Keep your loved ones close. Appreciate the small joys. Amen.
