And despite the morning I've had, there's still work to do. Deadlines are looming for several stories I'm working on and life must continue. Isn't that always the case, though? Fortunately, the human spirit is often so strong and persistent that we are able to find the willpower to continue on with whatever lies before us... whether it's a work-filled afternoon or a trip home to be with grieving family. In spite of the difficult days, I am grateful for all the good ones we get to experience. While my prayers are with my friend and her family, I decided to take advantage of the sun outside and office on my front patio. Sometimes you just have to find the tiniest bit of silver lining.
Hope you and yours are safe and sound. Happy weekend.
