I promise I’m working on something funny right now but I’ve been overwhelmed with anxiety watching so many friends trapped in flooding. One is literally being rescued right this moment after days of flooding and I was so relieved to see the picture of the rescue boat outside her window I cried. Look to my last post for places to donate and help because they’ll need help for a long time.
For now though I am mentally exhausted and I haven’t even lived through this except vicariously, so if I need cheering then others do too. So do me a favor and leave a comment with something to make others smile. Maybe it’s a joke, or good news you got, or a link to an otter video or anything else that brings laughter or a smile because I sort of need a smile right now and I think a lot of others might need it even more.
My happy: My kid started 7th grade yesterday and loves her electives. I got inspired and finished two more pages of my next book. I found an episode of Rick and Morty I hadn’t seen yet. I watched amazing people helping others and it reminded me that there are so many more good people than bad and inspired me to do more myself.
