People very close to me have recently had a very tough go of it. Lots of unexpected bills, illnesses, hospitalizations, emergency flights, etc. One of my dearest friends said “Life can be a real bitch.” He really meant it, and he wasn’t wrong.
When life is out of control, it’s best to try to slow down, get your feet back under you, and appreciate the things you have. In these blessed United States, we have an abundance of food, clothing, and shelter. Our existence is so rich, we can’t imagine hard times. For me, a game of cribbage with my wife, or even a nice spontaneous conversation can put a highlight on otherwise dreary days.
Get back out there and swing!
