as the Train lyrics go: When it rains it pours and opens doors
And floods the floors we thought would always keep us safe and dry
seems like there is a lot of yucky stuff going on, all around. friends are struggling with varying things. i'm struggling with various things. is it the change of seasons? is it just one of those times when it pours? can it all be over? luckily, none of our struggles are health-related, so we've got that going for us. but our struggles vary from love, lack-of-love, work, families, finances, co-workers...we run the gamut. unfortunately, some of us are dealing with more than one thing. and we've said our goodbyes to two friends who will be in sweden for 2 years.
even to myself, the best words of wisdom i have are things my mother would say:
this too shall pass
God never gives you more than you can handle
that which does not kill us makes us stronger
everything always works out for the best
so, hang on friends. we'll get through this, together. because sometimes, that mountain you're climbing is just a grain of sand (carrie underwood)... and eventually, we'll reach the top. but, if anyone wants to talk, vent, scream, get a beer, or stare at a wall - I'm always here for you, friends. always.
