Everything is....okay? [View all]

Hey Guys-

Just wanted to share an epiphany that hit me the other night as I was sitting watching tv. I looked around the room, and had this overwhelming sense of "OKAY-NESS"

bills paid, kids surviving(20-year-olds are sometimes unstable lol), house solid, food in fridge, laundry done, etc...

WTAF? I felt like my mom was lookinng down from heaven and saying "Finally!"
It's a strange peace, and I know it won't last, but for a fleeting moment, everything was alright.

My prayers are that maybe some of it will rub off, and you can have some OKAY-NESS too!!!

(Don't get me wrong, the rest of the world is fucked, but my little bubble is happy for now lol)
