Sometimes bad things gang up. Sometimes they threaten your sanity. Sometimes the worst things turn out to be true. Even though you might suspect as much, sometimes you are authentically shocked and even hurt when its confirmed, when the words are spoken and the fears are given life. Sometimes the phrase darkest before the dawn doesn't mean the dawn is near, only a deeper darkness waits. Sometimes it seems never ending. Sometimes life just sucks.


Sometimes the moon is big and bright and beautiful and  lights up the corn fields like a sea of gold. Sometimes the musical laughter of dear friends fills you up to bursting and the happiness flows down your face in tears. Sometimes you forget about death, divorce, disappointments, and dreams. In those moments it is simply enough to be breathing, to be with those dear people, to hear their voices raised in song and laughter. You understand that yes, we are fearfully and wonderfully made. Sometimes you know you're loved and that it's all going to be alright. Sometimes.
