Lately, the world seems to be on a downslide. Watching the news and hearing about all the layoffs and the economy, not to mention the disasters, deaths, and all the crisis' around the world has really made me stop and think. First of all, whether or not to even watch the news, and second of all to enjoy everything that life has to offer right now. I know that can sometimes be hard to find-but its out there! This last year has been a particularly difficult time, not only for my girls and myself, but for close friends and their families as well. The sad thing is most of these things rolled over into the new year and are still continuing. I always try to find the funny side of things. After all, I would rather laugh than cry. It's alot easier and funner that way. Things DO have a funny way of working themselves out in the end. It may not be the happy ending we want, but it is better than no ending.
