1. Having a husband who is strong for me when I need him to be. I can be a pretty tough gal – but sometimes, I just need someone to hug me and tell me everything is going to be okay.
2. Seeing a very difficult day at work bring out the very best in people. My work doesn’t define me – but I have been so fortunate to work with truly outstanding people there. My colleagues (both present and now former) really are the best and the brightest I have ever seen.
3. Learning that several local bars are offering free drinks to laid off individuals. While I don’t condone alcohol as a coping mechanism, I think the offer is a very kind one. (And for people who can handle an occasional drink, today is probably a great day to take one [or two].)
