The illusion that happily ever after is always rainbows and sunshine is foolish. I know I post a lot about smiles and happiness, but the truth is everything is not always happy. I believe it is possible to smile through sorrow. Most days will be amazing but some will fall short of that glory. This morning, I asked a friend how she was doing. She replied, “Hurt, but I’m ok”. This is the attitude we must have to keep from drowning. Happily ever after is not perfect!
