A brief thought for troubled times.
Things are tough right now and by all indications, things are going to get tougher.
The economy's in the toilet, there are wars & rumors of war and the bad news just keeps on coming.
It makes it really difficult to see a silver lining in the funnel cloud of despair.
But, before climbing into bed & hiding under the covers with a bottle of vodka, take just a minute and think about this...you are not alone.
If you have even one friend who cares about you, one family member you can talk to, one spouse or significant other who loves you no matter what the circumstances are, you are not alone.
Think about that one person (or group of people) who laugh with you & cry with you & miss you when you're not around. If you know without a doubt that no matter what happens, they'll still love you, then you are not alone.
So when things are looking grim & you're at the end of your rope turn off the TV, shut off the computer and call someone who's always been there for you and say "Thanks."
Because of them...you are not alone.
