Take The Good With The Bad
Sometimes, we just have to take the good with the bad.
This applies, of course, to every aspect of our lives. Whether it be politics, geography, weather, or even faith groups, there's always going to be something that is disgusting, something that turns your stomach. Don't get me wrong - I live to bitch about these things right along with you, but I guess 50 is a good age to start realizing that "there's nothing new under the sun," and that sometimes even the best pie in the world can be found with a hair poking out.
I'm really proud of how my kids are handling their dad going from the top of the heap to the bottom of the septic tank. They are all great children who are each blazing a trail on their own, free thinkers who aren't afraid to ask real questions and demand real answers.
Go hug somebody's neck today. Look them in the eye and tell them you appreciate them. Call your Mom - she wants to hear from you. Tell your kids that you value them for who they are. Thank a veteran.
Life is good. Living life is fun. Loving and being loved are priceless. Black licorice still sucks, but those yummy green apple...
