A Thought for these Tough Times.
For Family and Friends,
I heard on the radio today that 8 out of 10 Americans are stressed because of the current economic situation. A physiologist said that in times like these stress levels drop if people pull together as family and friends; therefore surviving this economic situation is a team, not an individual sport.
We all have our days when we're one trick ponies - we do our thing and that's about all we can do. We all have our days when just getting through it is like a three legged dog struggling down the street. They call it a recession and times are tough but there is always something left at the bottom of our emotional barrel, the vapors that remind us that others depend on us. So we buck up, wipe the blood off our faces, put the straps around each shoulder and start pulling again because it is what we do. A set back or two can't stop us.
Banks may fail and jobs are lost. Home are foreclosed and soup lines may form but in our little corner of the universe, in our own Confederacy of Dunces, we have each other, family and friends. So hold on to what matters and remember, we are all in this together.
Be there for each other. And here in Cloverdale, I'll keep the lights on for you ;)
