A morning without power at the house left me contemplating all the other things we take for granted as well. A short post as a reminder to be grateful for those as well.
My depression is a really big, dark cloud with lots of rain that keeps pouring down. But from time to time, when the sun peaks through and at the right angle, there are some silver linings to be found…
