Life is hard. And (for me at least) it’s easy to become overwhelmed and discouraged by things that are going on. Poverty, politics, the ecology… it’s just … so very much. I want so badly to help, and yet there is only so much a person can do. But I try. And I get easily frustrated. …

Tonight, I was lucky and my hubby took me out for dinner, and took me on a drive to “the bay”… which is the biggest/ closest body of water here. I need the water. It’s a life-saver for me. And yes, time by the water made all the difference, and I feel a bit better about things.
