Hard times are really times of wealth in disguise. Lord knows I ‘ve had my share. They are the times when you stop focusing on those who are not there for you and realize who steps up and is there for you. You find people you did not even know respect and appreciate you. They are the times when you are given the gift of being able to see things clearly and think quietly. They are the times when in the most overwhelming of moments all you can do is enjoy the simplest of comforts, a good book, a hug from a child, the fact that you are healthy and alive. They are the times when if you listen quietly you are closest to God. They are the times when you realize what really matters the most. Don’t run from hard times. They are necessary to balance our lives. When the good times come again you can share it with those that really matter. Peace and Blessings! Keep your head to the sky!
