The Good with the Sad

There seems to be sadness all around – friends who are very ill, have lost their jobs, fight in the midst of excruciating divorce, face children in the throes of serious addiction …and I could go on.

All news seems to be sad these days. Where, I wonder, is the good stuff? Is there any at all, anywhere? It doesn’t appear that way lately.

But, of course, there is great good everywhere.

All around me, I see great good people putting out loving hands to help. I see this everywhere. And am overwhelmed by the kindness and generosity and sacrifice of those around me.

My job is to model these folks. That’s all I can do. It lifts me up a little to think about how I can help, through kindness, generosity and self-sacrifice.
