Sometimes, I wake up and I think that maybe it is going to be one of these days. But recently I have discovered something that snaps me out of it. The day turns around. It might not go from being a "dark" day to a "sunny" day, but it becomes much more bearable and I don't need to remove myself in order to endure it. Actually it isn't a thing so much as a who... or rather "whos".
I have discovered that there are people in my life who don't really have to do anything much accept be there and it makes my day better. Usually these people have a smile for me, sometimes they have a laugh. But some of them are just a disembodied voice on the end of the phone or words on a screen (email buddies are awesome)! Simply hearing from them reminds me that I am not alone.
It is amazing what a difference a single person can make!
