Right now, our family is going through a Season of Hard.
One of my teenagers is dealing with some hard mental health things and our family has been in hardcore crisis mode for the past ten days.
It is stressful.
We are all tired and worn out.
But today, there was a little bit of sunshine.
Actual sunshine, yes.
Our other children have responded to the crisis by exhibiting kindness and compassion.
We just came back from an afternoon errand outing and there was laughter and smiling... and just a little bit of our happy back.
Tomorrow, it might be hard again.
Tonight even, it might be hard again.
But, we had this afternoon... and it was a reminder that Happy Times are still there to be had.
