Joining with [KIOS] this morning,
with a list of the 10 things I know for sure:
1. During difficult times in life, you find out who your real friends and family are.
2. During difficult times in life, you are stronger than you think you are ...
3. ... and stronger than everyone else thinks you are.
4. "Things will get better" isn't necessarily true.
5. "Things will change" is.
6. Change can be good ... and healthy.
7. No matter what happens, tomorrow will come.
8. Sometimes it is okay to take care of yourself first and let everyone else wait.
9. Nothing feels better when you are sad, than a purring cat and the pressure of a dog against your legs.
10. Even during difficult times, every day is a gift.
