The people that know me, know I’m a sentimental goof-ball.  I’d like to think when things are going wrong in the world, I can be a glimmer of hope for all things right.  Life is always going to challenge what you’re made of (Thanks Crystal).  Sometimes though, life really packs a nasty punch, and you wonder how you’re going to rebound.

Loss of loved ones.  Natural and man-made tragedies. Meanness.  You can’t control what comes your way, but you can control how you handle it.  One of the most powerful things I did for myself is to surround myself with people who care, people who matter, people that put out an umbrella when the storms of life rain hard on your head.  I found out some years ago that the umbrella doesn’t have to be big, it’s the gesture of pulling it out that helps someone make it through.  

Everyone gets bombarded with senseless, painful news at some junction.  I have been fortunate to have the grace of consolation during difficult times.  I have been more fortunate to bring consolation to others.  If you see someone at the end of their rope, go to them.  If you’re at the end of your rope, please reach out to another.  You must believe that things can get better. When you do, you’ll find that there is at least one person that believes as you do, and they will help you through that storm.

This goof-ball cares.  Others care. If you care and share, more of us will make it.  Hope is out there, waiting for us to find it and embrace it.
