Life changes no matter what. There are ups and there are downs always. Hang in there the bad times are temporary. Cherish the good times because they are not guaranteed.
I have survived some hard times in recent months. The death of three very close friends and the death of our beloved greyhound along with other life turmoils.
Now come the good times. Things are definitely looking good. A recent promotion at work, a new greyhound arriving next week, and a long holiday weekend with lots of time to spend with family.
This is the reward. Life is good!
