The Difficult Days

Some days are just so much more difficult than others. There's often no rhyme or reason to it, they just simply are. The hard part is digesting those unwelcome moments, the unexpected tragedy or the delivering of bad news. Today has been one of the difficult ones—this morning I had a very stressful personal experience and as soon as I returned home and was feeling better, I received a call from my best friend telling me her brother had passed away. It pains me even more to hear the anguish and sorrow in her voice and through her tears. I wish more than anything I was able to take that away.

And despite the morning I've had, there's still work to do. Deadlines are looming for several stories I'm working on and life must continue. Isn't that always the case, though? Fortunately, the human spirit is often so strong and persistent that we are able to find the willpower to continue on with whatever lies before us... whether it's a work-filled afternoon or a trip home to be with grieving family. In spite of the difficult days, I am grateful for all the good ones we get to experience. While my prayers are with my friend and her family, I decided to take advantage of the sun outside and office on my front patio. Sometimes you just have to find the tiniest bit of silver lining.

Hope you and yours are safe and sound. Happy weekend.
