7. That thought crosses my mind every now and then. Why wouldn't it after all he's shown us of himself?

His daily Reality Sh-t Show has us all working every day just to maintain some semblance of normalcy in his upside down, insane world. He loves it that he appears to have the power to make us all angry, upset, frustrated, worried. We can't change what he's doing. But we can do something right now.

We can choose each day to make the world better. A kind word, a smile even through a mask, a gentle tone. We can tell our family and our friends that we love them, that we're glad they're in our lives. We can listen to those who need a caring ear and we can keep reminding ourselves that this will pass. This day will pass.

This may not seem like much but it can be more powerful than we may ever know. None of us knows how much a simple word can mean to someone who's hanging on by a thread. Just a glimmer of hope can get a person through the darkest of nights and into the light of a new day where possibilities are seen that were hidden before.

As for tomorrow, that will be another story all on its own. Right now is all we have. Nothing further is guaranteed. Each moment holds that same weight. Moment by moment we move through life.

When the time comes that the current occupier of the White House loses the election, we'll play the cards as they're dealt. We're all together on this roller coaster and our fellow travelers are some amazing people. For now we must live each day the best we can, focus on the good, share a lot and care a lot. Tomorrow will be ours when it arrives.
