It is hard to keep 'up' and joyful when so many difficult things are happening. An online friend passed away last night. A friend of several friends committed suicide yesterday. I found out today that someone close to my family has possibly been involved in using money inappropriately, and this could have huge implications.
I am very thankful for all the many, many blessings I have every day. However, it upsets me to think of the family members of these individuals who won't be in a celebratory mood this week.
Sorry for the downer post. Thanks for reading if you did.
