Welcome to our first Music Mantra Monday we've had for quite some time. Like many of you out there, I've had to put a lot of things on the back burner while trying to sort life out around Covid. I think we were all doing pretty well around here until I got sent home on Friday to work from home until further notice. Now we have to re-work everything we finally had a routine for...again. I have a feeling this won't be the first time we'll have to re-prioritize.
But...life goes one, doesn't it?
When this all first started, it was a terrifying thing not knowing or understanding what we're up against. But like with everything I've been through in my life, I take everything thrown at me head-on. You simply deal with life the best you can and cope with any curve balls - and there are always curveballs - using the coping skills God gave you.
My grandfather was right when he told me life was hard. It can bring you to your knees where you feel as though you can't breathe or go on. Those moments, though, are what help you appreciate all the good that is to come. And that's what I hold on to every single day.
Technically, I shouldn't still be here. A couple of years ago, I came way too close to comfort to succumbing to advanced liver disease. Now, whenever life kicks me in the shins, I think of how close I came to never being able to have another chance and it's what keeps me moving forward.
So our song for today is to remind you that even though times may be scary, overwhelming, or uncertain there is happiness too that guides us to go on.
Be safe and healthy my friends.
