It seems to be a tough week,
few weeks or month
for so many, I know.

Sudden deaths, loved ones dying.
Others struggle with their lack of work,
or unrest with the job they have.

Relationship struggles,
worry and concern
of those we love.

Fighting cancer
or other health issues,
or trying to make life
altering decisions.

Earthquake in Oklahoma,
droughts and floods,
even Mother Nature seems unstable.

Some may blame
the (near) full moon.
It can cause unrest,
the feeling of being unsettled
and unsure.

In it's beauty,
it can also cause hope
and thankfulness.
Dreams of love
and happiness.

Today I send good wishes to
all of my friends that are struggling.
I want you to know you are not alone.
You are special.
Someone loves you.
This too, shall pass.

It is strange how sometimes things just seem to swing into a bad groove. I'm saddened that there has been another earthquake in Turkey.
