Learning to Laugh


A friend and I love to compare notes on the crazy things that we have done in the midst of crisis.

Some bills have gone unpaid and yet I was sure that I had paid them.

One mortgage was paid three times in a month. Did I really do that?

There's appointments that i double booked or forgot to attend.

There's books and movies read and seen of which I have no recollection.

Restaurant tips that were given that were totally inadequate or double the price of a meal.

In the midst of this is perseverance. 

We can rejoice in the midst of hardship.

"Suffering produces perseverance; perseverance character; and character, hope."
