All of us have hard and difficult times at one time or another. Some times the difficulties seem insurmountable, with no solutions or possible improvement in sight. Yesterday on the weekly Mormon Tabernacle Choir broadcast, the commentator noted that "no matter how hard things are, they could always be worse." This little mini-sermon was followed by the choir singing Iriving Berlin's "Count Your Blessings." ("When I'm worried and I can't sleep . . . ") So, it may be hard to realize that we are still better off than we might be or might have been, but we could be in a far worse situation. And, no matter how dire our straits, we still have many blessings to count. As long as we can breathe, we all have many blessings for which we can be thankful, many people who bless our lives, much sunshine, many beautiful mountains and flowers and sunrises and sunsets. Keep your chin up. I'm trying, myself. It's not always easy.
