Follow through

Today I am discouraged. There are several reasons why, but I don’t want to go into them.

Sometimes a day can make a heck of difference. I know that it has happened before: after the worst of days, I can wake up with a jolt of optimism and purpose. So, who knows how tomorrow will dawn.
