Silver Linings

Some of these are a bit of a stretch, but if there is a silver lining to every cloud, then perhaps some of the bright sides to this ordeal are:

*The Stress, Grief, and Poverty Diet works! The kinda-tight-in-the-butt pants I’m wearing today are actually loose now.

*I’m rediscovering my biceps, thanks to lugging boxes, moving furniture, and vigorous manual labor in the yard, preparing to move.

*I am keeping the tissue industries in business! Weepy much?

*I have weeded out my true friends from my fair weather friends.

*My cell phone company is making a killing on my phone calls alone!

*Someday…a loooooong time from now….when the wounds have begun to heal…I will have a lot of smartass jokes to make about all this.

For now, I just need to know he and the kids are safe, are comforted as much as possible by the fact they love each other, and have hope of being together again.

I am endlessly trying to make sense of a world that has completely and unapologetically lost its mind.

    Yeah, I know that diet, and it works wickedly well. Just make sure you don’t get so skinny your jeans fall off and you need new ones – thus pushing you further into the poverty zone.Hugs to you!

Don't be shy! Tell me how great I am. Or not. Share your feelings with the group.
