We're in the middle of one of those times when everything seems harder than it should be. Everyone is, or has been, or continues to be, sick: lingering coughs, fevers, headaches, sinus pain, vertigo, nausea and emergency room visits. Add to this canceled vacations, too little remaining sick leave, frequent school absences and missed work and you have a recipe for nothing good. In the midst of all this, there is still plenty of good to be found. Beautiful weather, beds to sleep in, cars to drive, money for necessities, good general health (what we have going on now is temporary), supportive coworkers, good jobs and family who loves us and whom we love and can always count on when necessary. Good to remember that almost without exception, it can always be worse and it will always get better.
