Life goes on (even with its aches and pains)

I know quite a few people are going to be enjoying the next few days because it’s going to be in the 30 degrees Fahrenheit, which compared to the previous temperatures when it was in the single digits, it will feel like a heat wave. Am I being too optimistic? Probably, but sometimes you just have to take the good times with the bad.
Another way to put it is with the song “I never promised you a rose garden” by Lynn Anderson. It talks about how things are not always going to be, well, rosy. There’s going to be rain, there’s going to be tough times when a person is by themselves.
Yes, this is something we all know, but there are times when we all seem to forget it. We’re going through one of those tough times right now with the pandemic. It’s brought a lot of problems, not just health wise. How we deal with it will be a mark of our character. For our grandparents, or great-grandparents, it was the Great Depression or World War II. In some ways we are still dealing with some of the same difficulties. During the war there was uncertainty of what was going to happen. There were anxious families worrying about a son or daughter or husband or wife stationed overseas. There were families looking for jobs or worried about putting food on the table.
Even with the difficulties, then and now, people can turn to family, friends or someone in their community to talk to or for some type of help. It just takes us realizing that we don’t have to go it alone.
Like I said most of this is something people have heard before, but every once in while we do need reminders that even with its aches and pains, life goes on.
