In several of my social circles, the year-end complaints about the WorstYearEver have started. This certainly has been a tumultuous year, and some people have had some hard knocks, but it can’t be the WorstYearEver *every* year, can it? When I think about it, I couldn’t tell you what my WorstYearEver was. This year had some stellarly sucky times, as does every year, but I can tell you really great things that happened to me and those around me this year, and every year, too
There’s a crack, a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in. Go listen to some Cohen. Leonard Cohen knows from the light.
This Advent, may I be buoyed by my blessings more often than I am dragged under by my challenges.
