I am so thankful for good, understanding friends. I had a bit of a rough day today and ended up crying with a couple of those good friends at church. I also received a rather encouraging text from a friend last night. I'm so thankful for people who are patient with me and are willing to "mourn with me when I mourn" and "comfort me when I stand in need of comfort". Thank you.
As I said above, today was not the best day for laughing, but I'll be darned if I don't find something from today that I can laugh about. Turns out, on my way home from church while I was still crying, I needed a tissue, or a napkin or anything. I searched desperately and would have just used my dress if it hadn't belonged to my great grandma. I opened the little box between the two front seats and spotted (no pun intended) one of my "female emergency" supplies. I quickly tore open the wrapper, pulled on the string, discarded the applicator and dabbed my eyes. I tell you, those things really are absorbent!
