Things are not easy right now. All over, they are not easy. In our own home, things are not easy. Still, I try to remember things could be much, much harder.
It seems popular right now to reflect on the Great Depression. I think that's a good thing to do, especially if we remember that as dark as things seem now, they don't compare to then.
My Grandma's family was very poor during the depression... so poor that they were basically squatters in a ghost town in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Now that's rough.
I love this poster from http://www.dazeychic.etsy.com/ "Today I Will Be Happier Than A Bird With A French Fry."
I'm trying to remember that life is good, even when times are tough and sometimes life is good because times are tough.
