End of October, 2016.
I'm posting this photo of me, smiling. It's a numbing thing to do, but I do it anyway. Fake it 'til you make it, they say. It's really true. I put on my makeup, I get dressed, I even ask Thomas to take my picture, smiling.
I look around me and see--my home (probably bigger than 97% of the homes owned by people around the world). My health (probably in the top 5% of healthy people in the world for my age). Yes, and my age--doing great for my age. My family--five amazing guys still running to and fro in my life, still intertwined, making me crazy but making me laugh, too.
I'm blessed. I have to look around and see. And I'll tell you something. This doesn't automatically give me the warm fuzzies. Does it change my perspective? Definitely. I have so much, so I can't complain, and I shouldn't despair. Do I feel better inside? No. I just let God know I'm thankful for what I have, and move on to the next thing. Which on this particular day, is work. So that's what I do.
Back to life,
