I’m sitting at my desk trying to decide what to put in the blog today and it all of a sudden occurs to me that it is no longer January! That means that we are officially in Birthday Month for this dear blogger. We hear it all the time – “Time flies!” In general I think this can hold true (unless it’s 2am and you are trying to soothe a crying baby!). The problem with time flying is that it does seem to grind to a halt when life gets rough. I know that the 8 months I spent on the inside went slower than any other 8 month period of my life.
I bring this up as a reminder because try as I might, I cannot stop bad times from creeping into my life. Friends will come and go. Jobs will be found then lost. Finances will fluctuate. There is not a lot that I can do about these things other than to ride them out and know that in the morning the sun will rise. Until it does, I will try to remember that the stars hold their own beauty.
